• Psychedelics - assisted therapy in


    Despite the huge therapeutic potential, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is not part of standard medical care yet. Self-medicating with psychedelics can produce undesired results, but despite that, more and more people feel disappointed with the efficacy of the current treatments and they turn to risky, but potentially more beneficial psychedelic-assisted therapy. The goal of this guide is harm reduction for people, who decided to self-medicate, we don’t encourage possession or consumption of illicit substances even for therapeutic endeavours.

Psychedelics – assisted psychotherapy in Connecticut

Legal status of psychedelics in Connecticut

According to Connecticut law, hallucinogens are classified based on their impact. For example, the proclivity to “create a perplexing or disorganizing effect on mental processes or actions when simulating acute psychotic disturbances.” These drugs can also be found in nature or synthesized. Marijuana is not listed as a “hallucinogenic drug” for legal purposes, despite its psychedelic effects. The legal concept of a hallucinogen includes substances like mescaline, peyote, and LSD. This list, however, is not exhaustive. Hallucinogens include psilocybin-containing mushrooms, ecstasy (MDMA), PCP (angel dust), and ketamine (Special K). Furthermore, Connecticut law contains a sub-category of hallucinogenic substances. This section contains five milligrams or more of lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD.

Possession of a hallucinogen substance carries some of the harshest penalties under Connecticut law. There is no charge equating to misdemeanor or “simple” possession of a hallucinogen substance. Possession of any amount of hallucinogen substance, no matter how small, is classified as a felony offense.

Any person who possesses or has under their control any quantity of a hallucinogenic substance other than marijuana or four ounces or more of a cannabis-type substance, except as authorized in this chapter, may be imprisoned for not more than five years or fined not more than two thousand dollars, or both, for a first offense, and for a subsequent offense, may be imprisoned not more than ten years or be fined not more than five thousand dollars or be both fined and imprisoned.

The safest way to obtain psychedelics in Connecticut

Connecticut does not have any specific laws prohibiting the possession or sale of psilocybin mushroom spores. Mushroom spores do not contain the psychoactive substance, psilocybin, that is banned by law. Because of this, they are entirely legal. You can even purchase psilocybin mushroom spores on the internet and have them shipped to Connecticut.

Lawmakers in Connecticut have filed new bills to reform state laws on psilocybin mushrooms. The Connecticut bill, sponsored by Rep. Josh Elliot (D) and four other legislators, would simply create a task force responsible for studying the medical benefits of psilocybin, the main psychoactive ingredient in so-called magic mushrooms.
