Safety & Legalities
The use of psychedelic substances is illegal in most countries. Moreover, some substances may be adulterated with toxic, even potentially lethal drugs.
WPD 620 envisions a time when synthetic and naturally occurring psychedelic medicines are better understood, made safely and legally available, and appreciated for all their beneficial, wondrous, and sacred uses.
WPD 620 shares frontier science and Indigenous wisdom to create awareness about the safe and therapeutic uses of synthetic and naturally occurring psychedelic medicines. Through traditional and social media, art, and music, this day of celebration and discussion engages and unites the curious and experienced.
WPD 620 upholds the essential values of sustainability, accessibility, diversity, inclusivity, transparency, and justice. We welcome collaborators and allies from across all identities, spectrums, ages, ethnicities, and geographies. Join us – better together!
