Psychedelics enter the scene

Yes, for a long time, unless you were a ’60s rock star, or someone specifically famous for their psychedelic advocacy or exploration like Aldous Huxley or Terence McKenna, it would have been disastrous for his image if he had revealed that he had participated in the most enlightening of experiences.

But, as you know, things are changing. Psychedelics like magic mushrooms and truffles, LSD and ayahuasca are coming to the fore as a force for good. Whether it’s because they’re being used as innovative new treatments for mental health – or because society is realizing that psychedelics are much less dangerous than very legal substances like alcohol – is becoming the thing to do to share your psychedelic experiences.

The stigma that previously existed has begun to dissolve. And with that we now have a wave of celebrities extolling the virtues of magic mushrooms. Some like what changed their lives by curing their depression. Others, because they changed their lives by having new knowledge and changes in perception. Others because it was just, well, fun.

“I felt very safe. It was like, ‘I want to have some mushrooms, I’m going to have some…

I don’t think it’s crazy. I think the thing about drugs for me is that if you take something to get away or to try to hide from things, then you shouldn’t even be drinking. And if you’re having a drink to have fun and be creative, then great.”

He also explained how he used the “afterglow” phenomenon of mushrooms throughout his recording process;

…and then (after taking mushrooms) for 10 days afterwards you’re like, ‘Don’t worry, everything’s going to be fine.’ It’s a stress reliever in a way. I think that’s been a big part of all of this for me, is that I’m trying to go through life being a little less worried about things.”

Sarah Silverman

“…we went back to my apartment, which was painted a deep purple to match my pipe. We got on my bed, and my friend started freaking out a little bit. I had strawberries on the sheets, and I said, ‘It’s okay. nothing, let’s go strawberry picking,’ and he was like, ‘It’s okay.’ At the time, Joe Jackson’s ‘A Slow Song’ was playing. And then we listened to Squeeze singles for the rest of the day, and played in the shower with our clothes on. God! We were so free.”
