Psychodelics were shown to have immense psychotherapeutic potential in 1960s. Why were they banned then? Not only they were banned from recreational usage but also from research and basically nobody could do anything with them for 40 years. Then it was lifted and it turned out MDMA cures PTSD in 2x as many people as 2nd best therapy and in weeks rather than months...

 

What do you guys think?

Politics. More to the point, to appease a bunch of hysterical voters worried about the deteriorating “moral fabric” of the nation.
