Frank Biden said in a recent interview that he has talked about the benefits of psychedelics to older brother President Joe Biden, amid a push by the industry to legalize them for medical treatment.
“[T]he psychedelic can be considered a medicine, whether it’s ketamine, LSD, or the way I like to refer it to is ayahuasca, the godfather of them all,” Biden said Wednesday on SiriusXM’s The Michael Smerconish Program. Biden also called it a “problem” that they are illegal.
Smerconish, who said he “embraced” everything Biden said, asked him if he had ever “shared with your brother” his views.
“I won’t push it too far, but I will ask you, have you ever shared with your brother what you’ve just shared with my audience? Does he know your view of the world on this issue?” Smerconish asked.
