No more excuses for Health Canada

B.C. non-profit challenges Health Canada to end 50-year prohibition on magic mushrooms

Several non-profits are doing Health Canada’s dirty work to speed up the legalization of psilocybin.

TheraPsil sent 165 pages of proposed psilocybin regulations to Health Canada, which were based on the medicinal cannabis regulations created 20 years ago. The document addresses regulations around selling and growing magic mushrooms, such as how to qualify for a license, quality control processes, security measures, and packaging requirements.

Other non-profits including the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) and the Canadian Psychedelic Association (CPA) are drafting their own legal frameworks.

“This will hopefully be a gift to them to have done their work for them,” said a CPA board member.
“All they have to do is agree, but of course, it’s never that simple. The bureaucrats will have to go over it with a fine tooth comb,” said a former federal treaty negotiator and psilocybin exemption applicant.
