Leading medical researchers at Johns Hopkins, NYU, and UCLA have clinically shown that active principles in entheogens can be an effective treatment for addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma and provide relief for those with terminal illnesses. 

Vote Yes on Initiative 81 to:

research On entheogens:

Depression & Anxiety

A variety of studies have found that psilocybin and ayahuasca can produce dramatic and lasting reductions in the symptoms of treatment-resistant depression.

PTSD

Psilocybin can be a useful tool for lowering psychological defenses and treating PTSD. Psilocybin can also lead to positive changes in personality; such as increases in empathy, openness and conscientiousness.

End of Life Support

Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can reduce depressed mood, anxiety, and death anxiety; and increase quality of life, life meaning, and optimism in cancer patients.

Meet Initiative 81 Proposer:
Melissa Lavasani

Many thanks to Kenny Reff of Limelight Communications for the production of this video.

Melissa proposed DC’s Initiative 81, “The Plant and Fungus policy Act of 2020,” after entheogenic plants and fungi helped her overcome severe postpartum depression. She is currently the Chairwoman of the Campaign to Decriminalize Nature DC.

Melissa was motivated to change laws in the District of Columbia so that other residents would not face the same fear of investigation, arrest or prosecution for using entheogens that she did.

Born to Iranian immigrants in Washington DC, Melissa currently lives in Ward 6 with her husband and two children and is a DC government employee.
