Canadian doctors are applying for psychedelic drug exemptions to dose themselves

Canadian doctors are applying for psychedelic drug exemptions to dose themselves

Doctors hope to use exemption to train in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy

By The GrowthOpJuly 3, 2020

https://www.thegrowthop.com/cannabis-news/canadian-doctors-are-applying-for-psychedelic-drug-exemptions-to-dose-themselves

TheraPsil, a B.C.-based non-profit coalition that has been helping terminally ill Canadians apply for drug exemptions to pursue psilocybin therapy, is expanding their strategy.

The organization is now helping doctors apply for their own exemptions so they “may personally try psilocybin and properly train in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy,” the organization said in an email to The GrowthOp.

A recent poll from TheraPsil found that the majority of Canadians, nearly 60 per cent, approve of psilocybin use for end of life care.

The organization has been trying to get the attention of Health Minister, Patty Hajdu, since April. They have helped four Canadians, including Thomas Hartle, apply for an exemption to section 56(1) of the Canadian Drugs and Substances Act. Hajdu is authorized to grant such an exemption.

“TheraPsil urges the Minister of Health to align with public opinion,” the organization said.  “We believe that this wait time is a cruelty to people facing an untreatable fatal illness.”

Momentum is growing for the liberalization of psychedelic drug use in Canada. An e-petition launched in April to decriminalize psychedelics has been signed by more than 8,000 Canadians and will be presented in the House of Commons by Nanaimo-Ladysmith MP Paul Manly.

Manly, the Green Party’s MP for Nanaimo-Ladysmith, will present the petition after it closes for signatures on August 14.

“In Canada, we are facing an opioid and mental health crisis that we urgently need to address,” Manly told The GrowthOp in April. “The use of sacramental and medicinal plants containing psychoactive ingredients is a promising area of research for potential treatments and therapies.”

Dude what a misleading headline, the first one at least. Clickbaity, sensationalistic. Would turn a non psychedelic person totally off the proposition of these doctors, I think, even though of course its a good thing. And they might see that with another headline. The seond one is better. But thats not the main one that was used of course.

My body my choice. You will always be paradoxically illegal in in some way if you decide how to use your own body according to someone else's written law.

One of the many contradictions that remain in this society. Very sad

Great point, I view the right to use drugs as a natural extension of freedom of conscience. The right to use drugs stems from the same place as the right to practice whatever religion one chooses.
