- Paul Stamets
"Psychedelic plants, fungi and compounds are tools for learning; they place in our hands the keys to learn how to become better humans."

American Revolution 2.0: Decrim in North America
What Can We Learn from American Successes?
Canada has been leading the world in terms of governmental acknowledgement of psychedelics, though Australia and US jurisdictions are quickly making progress. Join the PAC to hear from US advocates for psychedelic access from the states of Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Oregon has legal access to psilocybin, Colorado has passed laws to come into effect in 2 years' time and Washington currently has a bill before state legislatures. What lessons can we learn and what advice can they give us?

Ayahuasca on the Global Front: News, Updates, Trials and Steps Forward
The legal framework with Ayahuasca has changed immensely in the past two years around the world. In Europe, Italy and France have scheduled Ayahuasca as a controlled substance.
Most recently, Jose Campos, an Indigenous medicine facilitator from Peru is facing trial for bringing Ayahuasca into Mexico for healing ceremonies and has been imprisoned since being detained on March 9, 2022. This occurred after the Mexican government assigned the Marines as the head of the Customs agency. Since Jose Campos's detainment, 7 other individuals have also been imprisoned for carrying Ayahuasca into Mexico, 3 of whom are also Indigenous. This important trial will set precedence for the rest of the individuals in custody, as well as the direction of legality of Ayahuasca in Mexico.
With these recent changes and charges, Natalia Rebollo, head attorney for Jose Campos' trial, as well as the coordinator of the Ayahuasca Defense Fund, a program of ICEERS (International Center for Ethnobotanical Education, Research, and Service), along with her colleague Jerónimo Mazarrasa, the Social Innovation Coordinator from ICEERS will be joining Salimeh Tabrizi, founding board member of the Psychedelic Association of Canada to discuss the most recent news on the legal cases of Ayahuasca as well as informing our community about the changes and steps forward.
Petition to the Government of Canada
Compassionate Access to Psilocybin
78% of Canadians support access to psilocybin therapy at the end of life. (Nanos Poll 2020)
If a Canadian can qualify for MAID (medical assistance in dying) then surely they should have the right to have psilocybin therapy first.
Help us get 500 000 signatures on this Federal Petition.
Making it the MOST successful petition ever.
We only have 30 days to get the signatures required to have it read in Parliament.
Donations to our Compassionate Access Campaign will help us bring changes to out of date regulations, which permit terminally ill and mental health patients to access Medical Assistance in Dying, yet they cannot have access to psilocybin. This game-changing petition is one of many parts. Our goal is to raise $100,000 through donations and sponsorships to support the changing of hearts and the educating of minds in government and leadership, through July 2023.
As a non-profit organization, we can’t do this alone - we need your help. With your investment in this vital campaign, you become a core member of the psychedelic movement in Canada and you help patients in need get the treatments they deserve. By sponsoring this campaign you can play a key role in fundamentally shifting the psychedelic and healthcare landscape in Canada.
