Same with pot, it's not going to help people who are prone to paranoia and psychosis. Granted, I've not done pot so I don't even know how it feels. It's however known from studies that psychedelics can't get you addicted to them. At best you might just get addicted to the experience and you won't do anything with the healing or information that you are presented with. Psychedelics do that, they show you things about you and the world, they literally open your mind and allow you to see things from a different vantage point which is a massively helpful tool for some people, including for people who suffer from depression. I'd say that especially for politicians and other clowns it would be necessary for to take psychedelics so that they could learn to develop some damnempathy and common sense.
My mind is not normal either and I feel and see a lot, that is the price for sensitivity. I hardly drink any alcohol, I can't even drink caffeine because any stimulants are too much for me. It makes me anxious and my body gets all weird. I guess that's my mega Virgo side (Ascendant too in it) so my stomach is very sensitive and anything I put there is going to affect me greatly. So whatever that alters my mind or consciousness, I have to usually take it less than others. I don't do "drugs", although I am open to plants. This reality is a trip.
Paracelsus, possibly the greatest physician to ever live said this;
