Yet another illegal drug proves its medical benefits. Psilocybin has been shown an effective treatment for some people suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Psilocybin, or "Magic Mushroom," is a commonly used hallucinogen which greatly influenced thinkers like Terrance McKenna and is an important sacrament for many aboriginal Americans. This relatively safe substance should be decriminalised the world over along the Dutch model. Additional funding should be granted to studying the potential medical uses for this and other criminalised substances.

This is actually not really news, but the fact that they dare to write aobut it shows that the attitude to drugs are about to change in society. The problems that many pharmaceutical buisnesses have today is that the even the smallest minimal side effect aren't accepted. so it's better not to register something in order not to get suted.
