Governor Florida Man and Congressional Florida Man need that medication. IMMEDIATELY!

How often do you hear about the antics of New Mexico Man? Legalize peyote.

This is my dream.

That, and DMT.

I've been studying them since my teenage years.

I'm pretty sure they're endemic to Florida, meaning Florida Man already had access to them.  Which actually probably explains a lot about Florida...

If it gets Florida Man off meth, it wouldn't be all bad.

Could it really hurt at this point? I would love to take something for my ADD and depression that actually works. Strattera just ain't cutting it anymore, and I can't afford to go on a pharmaceutical adventure looking for effective meds. Most non-stimulant treatments are expensive and my health insurance doesn't pay a dime until I hit $6k in bills. But I pay $66 a week for that privilege.

Tons of studies are pointing to their benefits.  Will never go legal, pharma can't make money off a single dose that lasts a year or more.

Watch Fantastic Fungi on netflix.  Great doc on fungus in general, but the end talks about using psilocybin for PTSD and people near death (to help accept their death).

It could possibly be exactly what they need, subby.

I mean...giving Florida man ego death doesn't seem like a bad idea. Florida man thinks he's invincible. Knock him down a few pegs.

That might end up killing off peyote. It's a difficult plant to grow, and is endangered from people killing them wanting to get high.

My niece lives in Florida and is hooked on meth.  She said it is readily available and everywhere you go.  She goes on a binge, tries to dry out, and is right back on it a week a week or so later.  It's a nasty drug.

Speaking as Florida Man, I'm all for this.

The shrooms in that pic should have been harvested a day earlier.

They are issuing patents on psilocybin left and right to big pharma:  https://realmoney.thestreet.com/investing/cannabis/the-psilocybin-patent-race-is-on-15587732

Man, that sucks. My wife's sister was a hard drug user for several years, finally got mostly clean (she still drinks and smokes) thanks mostly to her now late husband.

I'm just thankful that she got clean and away from her enablers before meth became a big thing. She still has issues, but we were able to help her out a little bit financially recently trying to keep her on track.

I got some news, Florida man has had access to hallucinogenic mushrooms for a loooong time now 😁

One theory states that psychotropic compounds in some Florida mushrooms is just a copping mechanism for growing in Florida

Ay-yup. Used to pluck them growing out of cow patties. Got chased out of a pasture once by a farmer in his truck. (Youthful indiscretions.)

As someone who has a mild case of PTSD and has seen severe cases I am not sure having PTSD patients tripping balls is shall we say "a good thing".

They're just little tiny cacti, and they take years to grow.  They also look very much like all the other little tiny cacti. If you don't know what  you're doing, it's like looking for magic mushrooms. Except I think that button cacti won't kill you if you eat the wrong ones.
Not easy to find, and very easy to kill off.

That is farking awful.
For all the whinging about crack & heroin, meth makes them look like a warm beer.

I am not so sure it would rewire my head either.  I've done acid.   It didn't change my outlook on life or anything.   I smoke pot to stay calm.
We're talking about basically changing who you are.  You can't go backwards.  I can't be wide-eyed and innocent about shiat again.

They are talking about both using higher doses in therapy sessions with a professional, or "microdosing" on their own on a semi-daily basis (1 or 2 days between tiny doses).

Y'all need to realize big pharma is patenting this stuff right now. I posted above and got a funny for it; use Google and deal with the facts.

Then you don't understand tripping balls.  For a short amount of time your ego goes bye bye. It's a wonderful thing.

FTFA:  "One psychedelic [sic] not mentioned in the Florida bill is LSD, or acid. It, too, has shown promise as a treatment for mental-health issues, Rovner [would-be peddler of 'alternative medicine'] said."

No, no it hasn't.  It was tried at length for this purpose back in the '50s and '60s.  Didn't work; the stuff was too unpredictable.  I have no reason to believe that experiments on mentally ill people using substances whose effects are similarly unpredictable will come out any differently.  And it seems like cruelty to me to test junk like psilocybin and MDMA on people with mental health problems, but that's just like, my opinion, man.

They grow a lot faster if you graft them onto one of the psychoative columnar cacti. Or so I've been told by the warty green man squatting on the ceiling.
