Now that it can be synthesized using a patentable process, look for drug companies to start pushing for legalization and more studies.

A friend of mine with clinical depression recently tried psilocybin mushrooms as a way to 'reset' her brain based on some recent studies. It seems to have worked, although I don't know how long the effects will last (about six weeks so far) or even if it is some kind of placebo effect.

"making large scale production a possibility" - uh, farming mushrooms isn't *that* difficult...

Sure, but you can't patent the process of growing mushrooms unless you could come up with a significantly better way to grow mushrooms. It's all about patents and regulatory capture by the industry. Marijuana would be legal everywhere if it was difficult to produce by growing it and there was a patented process to do it cheaper.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
