Organizations and individuals are constantly referring to "scientific evidence" in support of the benefits of psychedelics to help in the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD etc. One of the first actions in implementing Measure 109 in the State of Oregon was to assemble all the available data showing the scientific evidence proving the benefits of psychedelics. The data is available to read on the Oregon website of Oregon Psilocybin Services. In reviewing this often quoted evidence it is never brought forth that each and every one of those studies involved very controlled environments and included days of preparation therapy, administration in curated set and settings and weeks, months and in some cases years of integration therapy all by licensed trained therapists. Decriminalization and State Initiatives in no way replicate the studies everyone quotes.
