“Trippy:” How Psychedelics Can Be Used to Treat Mental Health Issues

Season 2024 Episode 6246 | 18m 31s

Last week in the US, a federal advisory committee voted against using MDMA – or ecstasy – to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. It marks the first time FDA advisers have even considered a psychedelic drug for medical use. This is something Ernesto Londoño is passionate about. His new book "Trippy" draws on his own experience in the Amazon, trying to ease his depression.
