Chill/No-Chill: Treating Mental Illness With Magic Mushrooms

For the first time since the 1970s, clinical studies using psilocybin, a/k/a the magic in magic mushrooms, are reportedly going down. Study organizers are said to have recruited 12 participants with varying levels of depression, hoping to glean insight into the possibility of treating depression with psilocybin. 

Is finding a drug that helps to alleviate a psychiatrically diagnosable human condition, chill––even if the solution makes the trees seem like they're breathing, and comes from the ground and not via Big Pharma? Or would treating depression with psilocybin, or anything other than Zoloft, be no-chill and way toooo tripppy, man?
