The Canadian govt has now allowed people with terminal cancer to legally consume psychedelic mushrooms as part of their end-of-life care. This decision might pave the way for more people to access psilocybin therapy. Magic mushrooms have psilocybin and psilocin as active ingredients but these are prohibited under Canada's Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. However, exceptions can be made for a clinical trial.
