Extended through January 3!
Post Show Talk Back Friday August 3 only:
“Psychedelics and the War on Drugs” with Jag Davies, Director of Communications Strategy for Drug Policy Alliance, the leading drug reform organization. As previously banned substances like MDMA and psilocybin move towards FDA approval for conditions including PTSD and depression, the very premise of the war on drugs – that illicit drugs have no redeeming qualities – is being undermined. Yet thousands of people remain behind bars for possession of what are increasingly regarded as effective medicines. Jag and Adam will explore how changing perceptions and current medical research are impacting the war on drugs.
They say that laughter is the best medicine, but for one comedian with obsessive-compulsive disorder, it just might be psychedelic mushrooms. The Mushroom Cure is the true tale of how Adam Strauss tried to treat his severe OCD with psychedelics. Developed with and directed by Jonathan Libman.
