Ocasio-Cortez says she wants to study magic mushrooms

  “We need to get drugs and drug use out of criminal consideration and into medical consideration,” AOC told The Post on Saturday.

Nypost.com reports: The progressive darling filed legislation Friday to encourage studies of psilocybin, ecstasy and other drugs that some believe could treat a range of ailments, from depression to headaches. Psilocybin is often referred to as magic mushrooms.

 The measure, an amendment to an appropriations bill that would fund the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services, would allow the feds to spend taxpayer money on the mind-blowing experiments.

“There’s a lot of early promising research from Johns Hopkins [University] on the effect of using psilocybin research for treating our veterans with PTSD,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And right now, because of older provisions from the war on drugs, it’s preventing scientists from doing this medical research. So I’ve introduced an amendment to expand the research on these drugs.”

 Last month, Denver became the first city in the country to decriminalize psilocybin. The city allowed “personal use and personal possession of psilocybin mushrooms” by those 21 or older. Oakland followed suit last week.

 The first-term congresswoman campaigned on a promise to end to the federal prohibition of marijuana and has used her perch on the House Financial Services Committee to argue that weed legalization should be used to promote racial justice.

“It does not look like any of the people who are reaping the profits of this are the people who were directly impacted,” she said at a congressional hearing in February.

“We need to accept that there is nothing more inherently damaging about marijuana than, say, legal substances like alcohol or anything else,” she told TMZ that month.

“So, I’m glad that we’re moving towards a more just position as a party and that we’re moving to legalize marijuana—but not just legalize marijuana but to really make up for the damages done by the war on drugs and the people who were unjustly incarcerated by the war on drugs.”

 New York has legalized weed for medicinal purposes—but an effort to allow its recreational use appears to have stalled in Albany.

Racism -> Emergency Medical Doctor Rails Against Whites: “White People Can Be Exhausting” – ‘Racism Towards Whites Doesn’t Exist’ 

 Esther Choo (pictured above), an emergency medical doctor and professor in Oregon, took to Twitter to rail against white people and after getting called out for her racism, she asserted that it’s impossible to be racist towards whites.

According to Choo’s bio, she’s an emergency physician and associate professor at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Choo is the daughter of Korean immigrants and uses social media to talk about racism and sexism in healthcare, according to her bio.

“White people can be exhausting. Just an observation,” Choo said in a tweet on Friday.

When she received backlash for her racist tweet, Choo continued to taunt and disparage whites.

“Observation #2: white people are going to prove my point on this very thread,” Choo said responding to the backlash.

She also bragged that Twitter took her side when people reported her tweet.

“Observation #3: when people try to convince Twitter that white people are experiencing reverse racism, Twitter understands that is not a thing.”

Twitter may not have a problem with racism against white people, but what about the medical community?

Dr. Choo received huge backlash on Twitter.

This is coming from an Emergency Medicine Physician who is considered a "leader" in her field. She's scheduled to be a speaker at the American College of Emergency Physicians in October. She runs a website called FeminEM prompting Feminist causes in EM and a racist.

Pretty racist statement, TBH.

Protected groups being immune to being called out for blatant bigotry is exhausting, just an observation.

Replace “white” with any other race, and Dr. Choo would be out of a job.

Update: Dr. Choo deleted her racist tweets and set her Twitter account to “private” after she received backlash from hundreds of people.
