New York Post Article Dated November 9th, 2017: “An Amazonian shamanic psychedelic brew is a safe psychiatric medicine to treat depression and alcoholism, a British study suggested.

Ayahuasca, a drink traditionally used by South American indigenous tribes, was more effective in helping heavy drinkers tackle their addiction than LSD and magic mushrooms.

The jungle tea made from a mixture of plants contains the hallucinogenic drug dimethyltryptamine, an illegal Class A drug known as DMT or Dimitri.

Researchers from the University of Exeter and University College London found alcoholics were better able to control their drinking if they used ayahuasca than LSD or magic mushrooms.”

Canada legalizing Marijuana in 2018 (Article)

Canadians should be able to smoke marijuana legally by July 1, 2018, a senior government official said Monday.

The Canadian government is expected to follow the advice of a marijuana task force headed by former Health Minister Anne McLellan as well as the advice of former Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, who is the parliamentary secretary to the justice minister. Blair has been visiting police departments across the country.

The task force recommended adults be allowed to carry up to 30 grams of pot for recreational purpose and grow up to four plants.

Canada would be the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition of recreational marijuana. In the U.S., voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted last year to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Uruguay in South America is the only nation to legalize recreational pot. ~ (excerpt from article dated 3/27/17)
