Celeb Stoner is reporting the following.. The man who’s trying to legalize psychedelic drugs in New York State has been arrested for having them. On
Over the last 2 years there has been a rise in the interest in investigating the use of psychedelic compounds (Psilocybin, LSD, DMT & MDMA) for medical use especially with regard to aiding in various types of therapy for a range of issues such as PTSD, depression and dealing with addiction issues regarding alcohol, opioids and other substances.
Concurrent with medical interest legislative and legal issues have begun to come into play as cities and states around the country along with advocacy bodies are looking at ways to remove these compounds from existing criminal statutes.
Many lawyers with a background in the maturing cannabis industry are also now applying their skills and knowledge to the world of psychedelics and advising companies, authorities and governments on the paths to de-criminalization, regulation and markets.
A significant development in this new field of law is the funding of the The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School. The centre is engaged in a three-year initiative to examine the ethical, legal, and social implications of psychedelics research, commerce, and therapeutics.
Launched in summer 2021 with a grant from the Saisei Foundation, the Project on Psychedelics Law and Regulation (POPLAR) at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School will advance evidence-based psychedelics law and policy.
They say…..”Due to their therapeutic and commercial potential, the U.S. market for psychedelics is projected to reach $6.85 billion by 2027, attracting a significant number of for-profit companies and investors. However, despite the proliferation of clinical research centers, increasing private investment in psychedelic drug development, and widespread state and local decriminalization, there is a relative lack of research on the ethical, legal, and social implications of psychedelics research, commerce, and therapeutics.”
