Psychedelica Lex Episode 2021-014 - New Hampshire v. Mack     Psychedelica Lex  Episode 2021-014   New Hampshire v. Mack  Part 1 of 1     ____________________________________________________     Author and host, Gary Michael Smith, Esq., is a decades-experienced, AV rated, attorney, American Arbitration Association panelist, founding director of the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association, board member of the Arizona Cannabis Chamber of Commerce, and general counsel to the nation's oldest federally recognized, 501C3, multi-racial peyote church.     Psychedelica Lex is the first book to offer a comprehensive survey of the laws and regulations governing psychedelic substances.     ABOUT THE PSYCHEDELICA LEX PODCAST AND CHANNEL  President Nixon's enactment of the Controlled Substances Act in 1970 banished most psychedelics to Schedule I, making psychedelics for most purposes illegal.  However, as the Congressional Record reveals, psychedelics never got a fair trial and little scientific evidence, if any, was considered by lawmakers.  Prohibition was more about politics than public health.  Yet, historical record, anecdotal evidence, and scientific studies all suggest that prohibition was an unnecessary and harmful overreaction and that many benefits may be derived from psychedelics.     Psychedelica Lex puts the question of psychedelics on trial.  Hosted by a veteran litigation attorney, each episode will explore psychedelics from different perspectives.  As we explore the evidence together, you - the audience - will serve as jurors.   Together we will examine every facet.  Applying the rigors of cross examination and the Socratic method, we will seek an objective truth.   ____________________________________________________________   The growth, trafficking, sale, possession, or consumption of psychedelics,  may be a felony punishable by imprisonment, fines, forfeiture of property,  or any combination thereof.  Most states have regulatory and criminal  laws that mimic federal law.   This podcast is for general informational purposes only.
