Can psychedelics help us create a better world? Joining Sarah Grynberg in a highly thought–provoking episode is Rick Doblin, a psychedelic-assisted psychotherapist and founder of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies. Together they discuss his research on the safe use of psychedelics, marijuana and prescription medicine to remedy mental health conditions that are currently without known cures. They also explore the subtleties of the drug debate, what can happen if we change our approach to the use of drugs, as well as the spiritual awareness gained from hallucinogens. This conversation will open your mind to the possibilities, solutions and change we can all create when we venture the path less-travelled.
