A new psychedelic practitioner group is calling on the TGA and the psychiatrists’ college to relax what it claims are “virtually unworkable” guidelines for MDMA and psilocybin prescribing. 

The TGA downscheduled the two drugs on 1 July, allowing authorised psychiatrists to prescribe MDMA for PTSD and psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression.
