Mark Haden starts his TEDx talk with the reflection that psychedelics have been around in human culture since before recorded human history.

Many cultures around the world have used and still use psychedelics for healing, spirituality, and to connect individuals and the cosmos as a whole.

Psychedelics have always been used to connect people to their culture and to the universe.

A question naturally arises…

If Psychedelics Are Such a Divine Tool and Medicine, Why Are They Illegal and Seen as a Dangerous Drug in Modern Society?

Let’s take a step back to the 1960s, when psychedelics got linked to an antisocial message like it had never happened before.

When psychedelics such as psilocybin and LSD started becoming very popular among people in the 60s, a profound message of disconnection arose, creating a social backlash that inevitably caused immense human suffering that still goes on today.

Even science was suppressed and criminalized. The media participated in the spinning of the web of illusion.

But… Psychedelics are back!

An explosion of research has happened in recent years due to professionals who aim to use these pure substances in ways that are well supervised (not street drugs used by irresponsible adolescents).

So, How Do Researchers Think About Psychedelics These Days?

They break them into three categories:

1- The Classics

LSD, Mescaline, Dimeltitriptamina, Psilocybin.

These psychedelics are worthy of investigation:

  • It has been shown that they can help reduce anxiety caused by life-threatening illnesses such as cancer.
  • Psychedelics can also offer disorientation of the ego (which can be very helpful in treatment for alcoholism or any other addiction).
  • They also increase permeability between the unconscious and conscious mind (accessing our unconscious in a way we normally don’t)
  • They offer the “portal effect” – a sense of accomplishment in transition

2- The Empathogens

3-MMC, MDA, MDMA.

  • They bond people and increase empathy.
  • They take away fear.
  • MDMA may assist psychotherapy, it may be the best treatment for PTSD.

3- Everything Else

Ibogaine, 2CB or ketamine.

During the TEDx talk, Mark Haden shares his desire to articulate post prohibition models for the regulation and control of all currently illegal drugs based on public health principles, as he believes that drug prohibition is slowly crumbling under the weight of its own ineffectiveness.

What Is The Goal Of a Public Health Approach, According To Mark Haden?

To maximize the benefits
To minimize the harm.

We just shared some of the benefits, but what about the harm?

The harm of natural medicine can be divided into three categories:

1- Dependency

Mark Haden worked for addiction services for 30 years, and he affirms that no one has ever become addicted to psychedelics; the rate is incredibly low, if not non-existent.

2- Toxicity

LSD is one of the least toxic substances on the planet. Everything is toxic when taken in excess, including pharmaceutical medicines that are legally prescribed.

3- Behaviors

Behavior is the only risk, but only when there is a lack of supervision.

Even in indigenous communities, people always made sure they had psychedelic experiences in safe, supervised, and secured ritual environments.

Set, settings, safety, and dosage are carefully structured by the research community today.

If the goal is to maximize the benefits and minimize the harm, people could have access to psychedelic experiences as long as they’re supervised by someone in charge, such as a professional licensed in the subject.

Or, they could choose microdosing – the safest option that doesn’t require being guided.

Mark Haden Concludes His Tedx Talk Saying We Are In Trouble As Species…

Mark Haden ends his TEDx talk by sharing awareness of the dangers we embody as human species nowadays.

Why? – We are disconnected from the earth, from each other, from a sense of purpose, and from spirituality.

Psychedelics are all about connection:

Connection with the self – as they allow access to the unconscious self

Connection with each other

Connection with a sense of purpose and meaning to life

Connection with true spirituality

As a human species, we need to grow up and acknowledge what we already have!
