Psychedelic substances throughout the human history
were and still are used as medicine primarily for soul sickness but also for body sickness.
Unfortunately in the 20th century after hippie revolution psychedelic substances became illegal, working on theirs medicinal effects had become prohibited, they have been retreated
from medical treatment. Today in the 21st century, fortunately studying psychedelics comes back, they have noticed, that they help
with severe depression, PTSD and a lot of different medicinal effects
are discovered and I hope, that in Poland this substances will be used to help people too. Dr Marek Balicki, psychiatrist
Psychedelic substances studies in Poland will allow to extend our knowledge about their usage in medicine. If there are conditions to use natural substances in medicine, then the state shouldn’t prevent, restrict nor hinder the access to them for needy people.
It could relief a lot of suffering people and help in their treatment. Damian “Mestosław” Sobczyk, activist, influencer
For the last 50 years in most countries psychedelic substances became illicit based on arbitrary and not based on
scientific evidence decisions. Those substances were classified as addictive and dangerous drugs
and thereby banned by law. It’s time to change it! Maciej Lorenc, sociologist
We are experiencing psychedelic Renaissance. Current research suggests,
that psychedelics have great therapeutical potential
and used responsibly are not addictive and are safe. Furthermore they can benefit in
positive change or perhaps even save of human life.
Experiences induced by those substances make us comprehend ourselves better
and sympathise with people and our environment more. Dr n. med. Dorota Rogowska-Szadkowska, doctor, senior lecturer
We’ve managed to lead to quite reasonable discussion on medical use of marijuana and it became legal two years ago.
But we have still did not agree to
grow it in our country, we are importing it from Canada, which makes it very expensive for patients. We are going to try to make it possible to grow cannabis in our country which will lead to lower pricing and will benefit to Polish economy. Prof. Ryszard Kozłowski, chemist
Cannabis have been forbidden to use by ONZ in most of the countries
and have currently started to return. The USA which sent people to prison for posession of a small joint, in most of the states got over with it and are producing different marijuana-related products right now, especially in medicine obtaining development. Agnieszka Sieniawska, lawyer
We believe, that psychedelic substances can also be used medically in Poland.
To make this happen, we have to change irrational and unfair Polish drugs law and decriminalise and reclassify psychedelic substances into an attachment to the
Act on prevention of drug abuse which will make it possible to use them in studies, medicine and industry. Justyna Hobot, neuroscientist
We believe that studies on psychedelic substances
will help developing our knowledge about brain especially in mechanisms underlying human perception and subjective experiencing.
We believe that change of laws, increase of studies and reaching the media and society with correct information on possible benefits and true dangers of psychedelic use can contribute in positive way to development of society. We believe that only by acting together
we can make positive changes and that’s why we have appointed
