Hamilton Pharmacopeia’s controversy
Morris believes that filming documentaries about psychoactive chemicals, which were once reviled but are now being explored as treatments for neuropsychiatric illnesses such as depression and addiction, has a vital political component.
Morris claims he is regularly told that he should only show people using psychedelic substances in ways that prove the drugs are suitable as a result of the stigmatization.
“I think that is fine,” Morris adds, “but I will not do it to the point where I am lying about anything.”
He says he wants to portray psychedelics positively because they have been stigmatized for so long. But, in the end, Morris can only report what he sees—and the reality is not always good.
