Plus: Gov. Newsom vetoes SB 58 and psychedelics pioneer Roland Griffiths dies at 77
Conspiracy theorists will probably say that it is interesting that the off-duty pilot who said he had taken psilocybin mushrooms recently was on a flight that started in Washington and was supposed to land in California, but ended up being jailed in Oregon instead and charged there with 83 counts of attempted murder. (Many eyes in the psychedelic world and the law enforcement world have been focused on Oregon VERY recently because it is the first place to allow therapy using psilocybin mushrooms. And many people have VERY recently said "All it might take at this stage is a single seriously adverse event involving psychedelic mushrooms to crash the experiment in Oregon...")
We all know that psychedelics are not for everyone and there is always the potential for a bad trip. Taking any psychedelic without any king of supervision is also a bad idea. The second point is dose. There is a large variation in potency in any natural substance. Nature does not do quality control. There is also a large variation between peoples response to any pharmaceutical. The media and the legal profession will unfortunately take these two incidences the wrong way.
An inexcusably poor prioritization of your stories with your latest news.
Roland Griffith's passing was clearly the most important event to take place. Shame on you !
