Can psilocybin and MDMA treat mental health problems?

Psilocybin is the “active” ingredient in “magic” mushrooms.

In the meantime, parts of the US are embracing psychedelics. In 2019, the city of Denver decriminalised magic mushrooms, or psilocybin, after a referendum. In 2020, Oregon became the first US state to vote to legalise psilocybin for therapeutic use. Garcia-Romeu is wary about people believing that psychedelics might offer a “magic pill that will solve all their problems. “I always say, ‘This is not going to pay your bills, it’s not going to wash your dishes, or fix your relationship with your estranged family members.’ “You don’t just take a pill, and all of a sudden you’re in fantastic shape.”
