I agree that we all have our biases, that is part of being human. But there is a difference in recognising that and still seeking truth even if it contradicts that bias or using that bias as a compass for our truth-seeking. I see the article as the latter and glaringly so. On the topic of bias you speak as someone who is entirely unfamiliar with the subject at hand and talk about ‘drugs’ like someone from the Nixon era. I encourage you to look at the scientific research that has been done showing impressive results in psychedelic therapy. Namely with MDMA-based psychotherapy for PTSD and psilocybin for depression. Drugs are tools. We use tools to build our houses and roads, to create electronic networks where articles can be shared with the entire human race, to do every action we take during the day. Using substances as tools to better our mental health is no different than using a scalpel or chemical to fight a cancer.
