Airdrie patient with terminal cancer 1st Albertan to legally take magic mushroom treatment
Terminal cancer patient Tony White is the first Albertan to have undergone legal psychedelic therapy in Canada since Health Canada started allowing palliative care patients to take magic mushrooms to relieve end-of-life distress last year. White, who is from Airdrie, says he doesn’t remember much from his magic mushroom trip on Jan. 1, other than the feeling it left him with. “I just was lying there and I felt like I couldn’t be at more peace then, right then and there,” said White. White, who is in his 40s, has been struggling with anxiety and depression ever since he learned his cancer was incurable.
