Montreal’s 920 Psilocybin Mushroom Day festivities on Sept. 19 & 20 were covered by Adam Kovac for Vice Magazine! I’m fortunate to have gotten to work alongside friends in Montreal as well as from Psymposia to organize these events, and I’m looking forward to seeing those familiar faces at the Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics conference in less than two weeks!

The Montreal events turned out great, brought together a bright community, and generated much momentum to build on in the coming months. Check out the Vice article here; there’s a great quote from when an audience member asked Rick Doblin how to talk to his parents about drugs:

“Show them how they’ve contributed to your growth and the lessons you’ve learned from them,” Doblin advised. He described a Students for Sensible Drug Policy T­-shirt that had a picture of a nuclear family with the slogan: “Kids, have you spoken to your parents about drugs?”
