For centuries, psychedelic experiences have been a topic of debate. People throughout the years have described a multitude of different experiences with drugs that bring on psychedelic experiences. Some have said that these psychedelic drugs have actually been beneficial to their health and others saying the drugs should be avoided due to the dangerous possibilities. The most recent studies done have shown that there are radical beneficial effects in test subjects battling depression and anxiety. In the past, the war on drugs caused all psychedelic drugs to be banned from use in the US, while other countries allowed their use. In some countries, the drugs were used as an aid in medication for those with depression and anxiety and in other countries the drugs were made completely illegal.
