Dennis McKenna on the Benefits of Psychedelics

The above is a really nice, sensible monologue from Dennis McKenna (and accompanying video) on how psychedelics could be integrated into society for all our benefit. Well said sir.

In this video Dr. Dennis McKenna describes how people are reaching out for meaningful experiences beyond what politicized religious institutions can provide. McKenna talks about how shamanic practices can be integrated into our culture through rites of passage and medical institutions that value psychedelic experiences. Dennis discusses how the proper context for these experiences can heal the wounds at the heart of our society while changing hearts and mind in a way that's needed for a sustainable paradigm.

My buds Darren & Graham are going to interview Dennis in a future episode of the Grimerica Show. Stay tuned.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
