The relationships of classic psychedelic use with criminal behavior in the United States adult population
Research suggests that psychedelic drug use is linked to decreased criminal behaviour.
An analysis of 13 years worth of survey data revealed that psychedelic drug use was associated with decreased odds of past year theft, assault, arrest for property crime, and arrest for violent crimes by 27%, 12%, 22%, and 18%, respectively.
The use of other illegal drugs was associated with increased odds of criminal behaviour.
“These findings are consistent with a growing body of research suggesting classic psychedelics confer enduring psychological and prosocial benefits.”
