Are psychedelics legal now?

Generally speaking, no. With the exception of ketamine, most psychedelics substances are still highly regulated. However, both the social and political climate around psychedelic drugs (and substances more broadly) is changing, both in Canada and internationally. Numinus does not advocate for illegal drug use, but we are well aware that drug laws have done far more harm than good. It has also become part of medical and public health care to provide information about ways of increasing safety for persons who use substances. We are also aware that psychedelic use is increasing, and that many people require support—especially in our world where psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is still inaccessible to most.
