Cancer patients in drug therapy experience
If cancer patients have the right to end their suffering through assisted suicide, shouldn’t they have the right to end their suffering through psilocybin therapy?
In a Johns Hopkins study, 92% of cancer patients saw significant reductions in depression and anxiety 5 weeks after a single high dose of psilocybin. After 6 months, 78% still had significant reductions in symptoms.
Many of the 51 participants described a sense of infinite love, peace, and oneness, and several were able to come to conquer their fear of death.
“It was so powerful and so profound that it just took my breath away… I feel like it changed my life”, said one participant, Anthony Head.
