With Congress recently proposing the most comprehensive decriminalization bill to date, we are closer than ever to seeing the federal legalization of recreational Cannabis.

Even though cannabis has been stealing the show the last decade or so, there is another emerging industry waiting patiently to see what becomes of this bill in the Senate: psychedelics.

Researchers have found many medicinal benefits in psychedelics for the treatment of PTSD and depression, but, much like Cannabis, their use is often looked at as a legislative issue and not a matter of health. Proponents of psychedelics hope that the recent positive public sentiment towards Cannabis will carry over to their industry.

Thus far, we can only assume that businesses that specialize in psychedelics would be regulated similarly to those in the cannabis industry upon legalization, but that begs more questions than answers for those who will be serving these companies.

On Tuesday, August 9th at 10 AM PT we will be joined by special guest speaker Amanda Reiman, who will be giving us an introduction into the world of psychedelics and the businesses that surround them.

Amanda will be covering:
  • Current laws around cannabis and psychedelics
  • How consumption behaviors will dictate the differences in the cannabis and psychedelics market
  • Implications for the medicalization of psychedelics
  • Deep dive into Cannabis and other psychedelic tourism as an emerging trend
  • Potential future models and their risks and benefits
  • The role of accounting in the expansion of legalization of other Schedule I drugs
