Book Quote #2

On the use of psychedelics to help ease the pain of dying for cancer patients…

“The current political and administrative hindrances that prevent hundreds of thousands of terminal patients from benefiting from this remarkable procedure are unneccessary, indefensible, and even inhumane. Overcautious administrators and legislators have raised many objections against the use of psychedelics in other populations, such as patients with emotional and psychosomatic disorders, mental health professionals, artists, and clergy. Such opposition is absurd, particularly in time-limited, life-threatening situations where the problems involved are so serious that even the taboo against the use of really dangerous and highly addictive narcotics has been lifted.”

– Dr. Stanislov Grof
