Along with cannabis, psychedelics like Ayahuasca, ‘Shrooms, MDMA, LSD, Ketamine and other mind altering substances are resurgent, finding their place as part of the plant-based health and wellness movement. Spurred on by medical studies and the support of the psychiatric community in search of answers to PTSD, depression and a growing list of mental problems, the movement to legalize these previously outlawed psychedelics is rapidly advancing what many have suspected all along: that far from being the killer portrayed in the war on drugs, what we today call plant based medicine, is actually good for you. As a journalist and cofounder of Double Blind Magazine, Madison Margolin is a leading figure in the 21st century movement to benefit from these plants and their off-shoots. We talk about psychedelics, spirituality and religion, Ayahuasca’s potential for world peace, microdosing and the legacy of 60s LSD evangelist Timothy Leary.

Hi, my name is David Hershkovits. As a founder and, until recently, editor-in-chief of Paper magazine, I have been a long-time advocate for cannabis reform and legalization as well as a supporter of the community and culture surrounding this movement. On Light CultureI, I’ll be exploring the exploding cannabis industry and its relationship to our lives and times as told through the voices of some of today’s most influential tastemakers — rappers, writers, artists, fashion designers, models, advocates and activists, influencers, entrepreneurs and others who live the cannabis life, respect its history and embrace its future. Light Culture is brought to you exclusively by Burb — where cannabis, clothing and culture intersect. Based in Vancouver, Canada, Burb hopes to build on the city’s legacy of tolerance and respect and on British Columbia’s great gift to the world — BC Bud.
