ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Most New Mexicans have probably heard of medical marijuana. But how about medical magic mushrooms?
Well, probably not. But the truth is, New Mexico has quietly been at the forefront of psychedelic research for more than two decades, and remains a key component in on-going studies of powerful psychedelic drugs.
“It’s gratifying,” said Dr. Rick Strassman, a psychiatrist who performed the first psychedelic experiments on humans in 20 years at the University of New Mexico. “I’m surprised more people haven’t taken advantage of the work I did.”
Strassman studied a drug called demethyltryptamine – also known as D-M-T – which is a hallucinogenic substance produced naturally by the body and found in hundreds of plants. D-M-T is similar in chemical composition to psilocybin, the hallucinogenic ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms, Strassman said.

It only grows in southern Mexico, a plant called salvia divinorum, and we found it packaged up and for sale on the shelves of several Albuquerque shops.
