Are Magic Mushrooms the Next Drug to Be Legalized?

This is very reminiscent of how marijuana became legalized in several states for medical usage. Researchers at NYU and Johns Hopkins are now saying that magic mushrooms may help people with cancer to reduce anxiety. The test was controlled and in a safe environment, so we can only wonder if it would have the same effect if taken in a less spa-like place. Marijuana is a great example of how a substance becomes legal for a select medical group of people, but then doctors minimize the burden of proof to access the drug. So now we wonder if the next hippie push will be to legalize shrooms (with a medical card of course).
