Robert Anton Wilson's belief that the government should not halt research into the use of psychedelics obviously has held up rather well; I can't link to all of the available articles, such as this one about psilocybin being used to treat depression, there are just too many. But here are a couple of things that surprised me:
The California state Senate has voted to legalize natural psychedelics in a bill that now moves to the California House, e.g. psilocybin mushrooms yes, LSD no. Peyote also is left out, "in response to concerns raised by advocates and indigenous groups regarding the cacti being over-harvested." It sounds like this bill maybe will be enacted into law. More details here.
Also see this Tweet from Graham Hancock: "Volunteers in the extended-state DMT project (DMTx) at Imperial College, London, speak out publicly for the first time about their encounters with seemingly intelligent entities under the influence of DMT..."
The Tweet has a link to a YouTube video. I don't know what to make of it, but doesn't it sound reminiscent of a certain book?
