While many may be unaware of the existence of Ayahuasca, it is an entheogenic brew made out of Banisteriopsis caapi vine and other ingredients.
Magicians have a stricter code of ethics.
Religious leaders love to manufacture demonstrations of “faith healing” which have never been scientifically proven to heal anyone. This is why hospitals have doctors instead of faith healers. More recently, however, they’ve started the practice of denial about their religious agenda. This is done by creating “Clinics” where they charge for “services” that amount to conning women seeking an abortion into waiting until a pregnancy has gone on for too long to allow an abortion to be legally performed.
The United States Supreme Court ruled on June 26, 2018 that religious groups (or anyone else that wants to pretend to be a doctor for purpose of tricking people where their healthcare is concerned) has the right to lie about their agenda. They also have the right to pretend to be doctors and/or nurses even though nobody associated with the “Clinics” they run has ever read a book or sat in a class remotely associated with medicine. In short, lying is a protected right under the first amendment. A right that, apparently, extends to the point of screwing over a persons health.
In Seattle, Washington there is a large office building with a legitimate clinic run by the University of Washington. This clinic has a number of doctors, nurses, and lab technicians who provide a number of services to the community. It takes up an entire floor of the building. No, it’s not the first floor. The ground floor, where people enter the building, has tons of office space is available for rent at the time of this writing.
If I had the funding, I could legally rent out all that space and have it decorated to look like a “Clinic”. I could legally staff the lobby “offices” with minimum wage workers wearing labcoats. Their job would be strictly to make “appointments” for people to visit the full floor “clinic” situated one or two floors above the clinic which has actual doctors in it.
According to the United States Supreme Court, and the laws of the state of Washington (where marijuana is legal) I could use the illusion of a “Clinic” to “prescribe” a combination of over the counter herbs and marijuana for any number of illness’s. Any illness’s that required actual doctors? I could have them “Referred” to a clinic where there are actual doctors – though the REAL clinic that people were referred to need not actually be in the same building. I could send them anywhere.
