Religious Exemptions

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration guidelines allow persons to petition for exemptions to the Controlled Substances Act for the religious use of psychedelics in accordance with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 and the 2006 U.S. Supreme Court case Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita Beneficente Uniao do Vegetal. The agency’s process is opaque, and the agency never or almost never grants exemptions.
