The defendant’s legal team will present a body of evidence to show that psilocybin mushrooms are not dangerous or addictive, and that they have untapped therapeutic and spiritual potential. On that basis, they’ll then argue that South African laws, which ban this substance, are unconstitutional, because they deny South Africans access to this substance.
