Can psychedelics treat addiction? Paul Stamets says yes

According to Paul Stamets, mycologist, scientist, and key psychedelic thought-leader, psilocybin has the potential to treat addiction, prevent violence, and promote a more empathetic society. In his words:

“We know psilocybin is very helpful for PTSD and depression. So this is a game changer, fundamentally, across our society. So for any law enforcement out there, your jobs will be easier. You’ll have better encounters with the citizens. You won’t be demonizing the citizens. You will have empathy and understanding that people are all trying to work together. This is truly a medicine for the masses.”
