  1. If it works for them I think the law should allow it yummy this world is messed up because of depression anxiety panic attacks PTSD yeah we need medicines for that and make it legal your pharmaceutical people y'all still going to be billionaires take the chains off of us and let us live our life the way we want to live it. Lights camera action.

  2. Weed is good nothing else should be allowed to even be talked about in the room of using any psychedelics as medical use. Weed will always make you calm down but it wears off quickly compared to psychedelics where there is a very high chance you will have a bad trip especially if you think you are going to have a bad trip you will have one

  3. Watching this makes me feel really confused and shocked at the same time. I don’t know if these people have never actually done drugs before but boy they sound a little delusional to me, the hosts I mean

  4. I did acid YEARS AGO, Never had a bad trip. Currently depressed for years. Been on 40 plus medications, no success. Maybe I should go.

  5. It always amazes me the ignorance of our government and society in general. I’ve been to Amsterdam where mushrooms along with weed are legal (now only for residents – this is largely because people from other countries mix it with Alcohol and act like complete fools while there). Go check the crime rates – the Netherlands has one of the lowest in the world http://www.bbcnewshub.com/countries-with-lowest-crime-rates/ . So why are psychedelics illegal in America (schedule 1) ? As a free nation we have one of the most oppressive governments in the world all because they want to control the culture – you can thank the hardcore Christian Right for that mentality. In the 60’s they didnt like the hippy counter-culture that was questioning the horrible social norms we had and still have in this country . The other thing that drove the anti-drug mentality was racism – Marijuana Stamp Act of 1937 is great evidence of this “As we noted earlier, marijuana use began in this country in states near the Mexican border,44 "marijuana" in fact being a Mexican label for the cannabis drug. Throughout the 1920's marijuana use was confined primarily to the Mexican-American community; however, by the late 20's use of this drug had spread to many of the larger cities and had become quite popular among some elements in the Black ghettoes .45 jazz musicians, dancers and others found the drug a cheap and readily available euphoriant.46”. http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/library/studies/vlr/vlr3.htm. I’m not advocating that everyone should use drugs (oh but they do , in some form of another) , I’m saying lets stop being so ignorant and be smarter about how we use them , when , where and for what purposes. The opioid crisis we have in this country today ,is due to biggest and most irresponsible drug dealers on the planet – the Pharmaceutical companies that our Government has done nothing to curb in a meaningful way all for $$$$

  6. I've had profound experiences while tripping. Life changing ones. I tripped at least 15 times in my life. I loved it. I'm 60 years old so its been around 20 years since I did it. I don't know how to find acid anymore. I would do it again if I could.

  7. When you control for variables such as set (mindset), setting (location/who you're with), and dose, you greatly reduce the chances of a bad experience. If someone is in controlled settings with an experienced sitter, it is very unlikely for them to have a "bad trip". However, these experiences can be challenging when you need to confront deep trauma or your shadow – but ultimately rewarding in the end.

  8. My lifetime depression has been healed by Ketamine, another psychedelic drug! Please do a spot on it as well. It is already available to the public.

  9. $$$$$$$$$$$$
    OK, so now we know the REAL reason my they're illegal. The pharmaceutical industry must be sweating bullets right now.

  10. This is no surprise to anyone who has tried mushrooms. The only reason it is illegal is because Nixon wanted to suppress his opponents. Every day that they remain illegal is a travesty.
