I don't know if it is me but I have realized that some drugs are being used for various mental health problems. Weed, I understand, but ecstasy, mushrooms, PCP. Come on now.

Super interesting subject Ronald. I'm not a scientist - evidence-based research is supporting claims of potential benefits.

I think it's because so many people died using it recreationally, it was a knee-jerk reaction to make them illegal. Maybe now they're actually testing them for professional use so they can capitalize on the benefits of the drugs? I don't know but I do know there are plenty of prescription drugs that can kill you if used recreationally but are a big help if prescribed by a doctor and used properly. Hope that helps.
