Australia Has Become The First Nation To Approve The Legal Use Of MDMA And Psilocybin

Last week Australia became the first country to say “screw it”

and started handing out MDMA, & magic mushrooms to everyone and their grandma in hopes of reaching world peace. Okay okay, we're just messing around (even though we’re not totally opposed to the idea), but Australia has in fact become the first country to allow psychiatrists to prescribe MDMA and psilocybin to their patients.

To be honest though, the Australian officials didn't seem absolutely ecstatic that the change was moving forward saying it was actually a decision influenced by ongoing research. But hey, at least the research is convincing enough to force change. Of course the process to allow these substances to be used by clinical psychiatrists is treacherous, going through multiple approvals as well as ongoing training and monitoring. Which will hopefully ensure its carried out as safely and professional as possible, mitigating the risk of potential negative experiences patients may face.

Being the first nation to officially legalize these substances as medicine is a monumental step in the movement of psychedelic awareness.

We've even seen the influence in our own country here in Canada, with the Albertan government announcing they'd regulate psilocybin, psilocin, MDMA, LSD, mescaline, DMT, 5 methoxy DMT and ketamine to be used for medicinal purposes back in 2022 (Not trying to brag Australia, but our plug has way a bigger selection). The evolution of psychedelics as a medicine is poised to make big moves this year moving forward, with more global attention and acceptance gaining daily. It’ll definitely be interesting to see how this law change will carry out across Australia and how the wide availability will affect any ongoing clinical research trials. They seem to be taking a really conservative approach to it, especially in comparison to Alberta with the list of drugs they're offering. But that doesn't automatically mean it's bad or the wrong move, it’s important that people take these substances seriously and do it in safe settings. ESPECIALLY when its being used for medicine. Who knew we’d be kicking 2023 off with countries legalizing drugs? Not bad Australia, not bad.
