Psychedelics – assisted psychotherapy in Nebraska

Legal status of psychedelics in Nebraska

Controlled dangerous substances are divided into five “schedules” in Nebraska. The most dangerous medications, with a high risk of abuse and addiction and no recognized medical benefit, are included in Schedule I. Schedules II, III, IV, and V are lower in dangerousness and probability of abuse and have more recognized medical uses.

Nebraska criminalizes the possession of hallucinogens and their precursors (substances used to manufacture illicit drugs). Penalties for personal possession include a fine of up to $10,000, up to five years in prison, or both.

The safest way to obtain psychedelics in Nebraska

Nebraska will be the last place to ever consider legalizing psychedelics. Researchers have been investigating psilocybin as a treatment for anxiety and depression for years, but the scientists do not recommend injecting mushroom tea — or any hallucinogenic drug, for that matter — straight into your veins. That is exactly what one Nebraska citizen did, causing multiple organ failures.

Nebraska state senators and activists are in the process of drafting an initiative to legalize cannabis for adult use that they hope will appear on the state’s 2022 ballot, so the state is not entirely hopeless in drug policy.
