the psychedelic drug state

< Previous | Next >


What is "drug state"? It is like something of "social status of drug"? Illegal drug is low since illegal drug users are punished by government.

Am I on the right track?
Likewise, how one understands the psychedelic drug state determines the assessment of risks and benefits, and thus drives recommendations for rescheduling. The Johns Hopkins University research group has been one of the most active in the U.S. over the last 15 years. In his book, Sacred Knowledge, William Richards, the clinical director of Hopkins’ psychedelics research program, refers to the drugs’ “inherent spirituality.” He also publicly advocates for widespread availability of these “entheogenic” drugs in his lectures with titles like “Revelation Now.”

    It's not really clear with just the context you've given us, but I suspect it means "the mental state of someone under the influence of psychedelic drugs."
