Are psychedelics legal in the US?

As of December 2022, only ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, is federally legal in the United States (See What is Ketamine?). However, every provider on the TARA Mind platform can legally practice and work with individuals undergoing psychedelic therapy in their specific region or country of operation.

1. Under the federal Controlled Substances Act, psychedelics such as LSD, MDMA, psilocybin, DMT, and ibogaine, among others, are classified as Schedule I substances, while ketamine is a Schedule III drug. It is a federal crime to possess Controlled substances in the United States without express exemptions under the Controlled Substances Act. TARA Mind does not endorse the recreational use of psychedelics or any other controlled substance; nor does it recommend the use of psychedelics for any other purposes without proper legal exemptions or approvals granted by the FDA and/or the Controlled Substances Act.
