In this episode, Joe interviews Reggie Harris: Founder of Oakland Hyphae, which organizes events like the Hyphae Cup (previously the Psilocybin Cup), and performs psilocybin potency testing through Hyphae Labs. He discusses his concerns over the burgeoning psychedelic industry not learning from the mistakes of a failing (at least in California) cannabis industry, and the need to end the drug war immediately and allow the people who got us here to once again live their lives freely. He also talks about why he thinks Oregon is legalizing psilocybin much too quickly; why he thinks we should decriminalize now (and legalize later); the overbearing burden of cannabis industry taxes and how legacy operators are switching to psilocybin; the stories of Kole and Seth Rosenberg; why Mike Tyson is one of the most important influencers in psychedelics; and why “fuck around and find out” has become a bit of a personal mantra for him and so many others looking to advance our quickly evolving psychedelic space.
