Psychedelic usage and Society

Ryan (@fadingfootprints) 8 years, 11 months ago

Those who have experimented with psychedelics will most often unanimously agree that in regards to psychedelics, you shouldn’t knock it till you try it. Why, then, isn’t psychedelic usage, especially psilocybin mushrooms, commonplace in our society? Have shrooms always been illegal? What created this negative notion towards experimentation? They clearly aren’t as internally detrimental as tobacco nor externally detrimental as alcohol. So it can’t exclusively be related to health concerns, right? I’m trying to approach the legality of psychedelics from the perspective of one in agreement of its current legal status. Before my experimentation, I simply wasn’t very aware of their effects, both temporary and long term. So I imagine most people are simply complying the status set fourth by preceding generations. “Past generations say it’s bad, they must be right.” Is it as simple as a lack of curiosity or interest in why psychedelics are illegal? Clearly politicians don’t know something we don’t, they simply comply to what they believe the people want, or so we hope. Why then, are psychedelics perceived to be bad?
