Are psychedelics legal now?

Except for ketamine, which is legal in a medical setting, most psychedelic substances are regulated and can only be legally accessed through clinical trials or through special government approvals. However, the social and political climate around psychedelic medicines is changing as research continues to demonstrate clear benefits to those suffering with mental illness.

It is important for medical and public health care practitioners to provide information about ways of reducing harm for persons who use substances. We are aware that psychedelic use is increasing, and that many people require support.
