According to Business Insider, there is a team of researchers that is calling for magic mushrooms to be made legally available as medicine. A group of Johns Hopkins University scientists wrote in a recent journal article that psilocybin, the active ingredient in psychedelic magic mushrooms, has a low risk of harm and a high potential as a therapeutic drug. There's been a resurgence of interest lately in psychedelics' therapeutic potential for a variety of mental health applications, from depression to anxiety. Pending results from several ongoing clinical trials, the researchers called for psilocybin to be placed in the most lenient category by the Drug Enforcement Administration — alongside CBD, which was rescheduled last month, and cough syrup.
