Courtroom Drama: Therapsil - Taking the Government to Court to get Psychedelic Access for Patients

In a case reminiscent of David and Goliath, Therapsil, represented by lawyer Paul Lewin, is going to the Supreme Court on behalf of their clients to ensure vital access to psychedelic medicine for end of life patients.

Noted Canadian lawyer Paul Lewin has won many cases challenging drug laws in courts across Canada. His latest action is suing the government of Canada on behalf of Therapsil and its clients, to give end-of-life patients access to psilocybin without having to access this medicine through the many layered red tape of the Canadian government.

Also joining in this important conversation is Therapsil's Spencer Hawkswell and Human Rights Lawyer John Conroy (who also has many victories at the Supreme Court of Canada).  Together they will update us on the progress of the groundbreaking case to get access to psilocybin for all Canadians.

Join us to show your solidarity with making psychedelic medicine a legal right for all in Canada!

Canada Supports Campaign

The PAC to introduce new regulatory change to Health Canada

Canada overwhelmingly supports access to new regulations with polling numbers showcasing the need for change including, 78% of Canadians polled support or somewhat support a government that legalized psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients.

The Psychedelic Association of Canada and other experts from across Canada have been meeting with Members of Parliament, senior government officials, representatives from all parties, and national stakeholders over the past 10 months and encountered unanimous support for access to psilocybin therapy with a palliative diagnosis.

With public support at an all-time high, we are focusing on introducing evidence-informed regulations to officials at Health Canada. We come together with a group of key experts including palliative care professionals, therapists, MDs, non-profit supports, industry, medical and legal experts to communicate, petition, and deliver a regulatory framework that will transform the lives of Canadians who deserve access to medicine that can help them overcome their most debilitating mental anxieties.

Work with us, lend your support and help us create a new path for legal psilocybin-assisted therapy in Canada. #canadasupports
