Psychedelics – assisted psychotherapy in United States
The history of psychedelic medicine is long and complex. However, an increasing body of research relating to the medicinal effects of these drugs has contributed to a movement toward decriminalization in a number of jurisdictions. Decriminalization and legalization, on the other hand, are not the same thing. However, legal psychedelics are only available in a few places in the United States. Only certain forms of drugs are currently allowed.
Is it possible to obtain legal psychedelics in the United States? Yes, but only under some circumstances. In fact, only a small percentage of people in America have a chance to use psychedelics legally. As part of the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, the United States listed all psychedelic drugs as Schedule I substances (CSA).
The legalization of psychedelics in the United States may take some time. Some cities, on the other hand, are leading the fight to end the prohibition of such psychoactive substances.
In May 2019, Denver became the first city in America to decriminalize magic mushrooms. Ordinance 301 received 50.6 percent of the vote and was approved. Then they decriminalized all entheogenic plants in June 2019 and January 2020, respectively, Oakland and Santa Cruz in California became the second and third cities to do the same.
Three constitutionally licensed churches in the United States use psychedelics as religious sacraments. The Native American Church is excluded from the CSA under the American Indian Religious Freedom Act of 1978. As a result, natural psychedelics like peyote can be consumed on reservation territory. Just 28 states, however, have passed legislation similar to the federal provision.
