Abstract: We live in a world plagued by mental health diseases, which only seem to magnify each year. Conditions like addiction, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder affect a large swath of the population – according to a 2017 study, depression alone affects over 4.4 percent of the global population – and current events like Covid-19 don’t tend to help matters.
Can you imagine a world where anxiety, depression, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder are remnants of the past? It’s a tough rationalization, especially considering the aforementioned current events. But what if society could significantly diminish these debilitating mental health conditions with a single use of a substance? It may sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what’s been said about several psychedelic substances, including magic mushrooms.
