Prince Harry has praised the positive effects of the drug on his mental health
But the families of loved ones who have lost a loved one to drugs are outraged
They believe that Prince Harry is irresponsible
Prince Harry had remarks noticed. Indeed, the Duke of Sussex indicated that his consumption of “cannabis” had “really helped” him after the death of his mother. Meghan Markle’s husband later praises her so-called “positive” experience of the psychedelic drug ayahuasca, saying it “brought me a feeling of relaxation, liberation, comfort, a lightness that I managed to maintain for some time”. Words that strongly reacted to the family of Jennifer Spencer, a young woman who committed suicide after consuming the same drug.
Those close to the young woman then called these statements “irresponsible”. His aunt, Fiona Chase said Prince Harry should not praise psychedelic drugs because “they can affect people in dangerously different ways”. “He shouldn’t speak positively about this drug. It’s irresponsible because a lot of people look up to it. It worked for him, but it definitely didn’t work for Jenny. Like every drug, different people react differently. “
Prince Harry, criticized from all sides
If he indicated the beneficial effects of this substance on his mental health, Prince Harry made other revelations: “Cocaine did nothing for me, it was more of a social thing and gave me a sense of belonging for sure, I think that probably also made me feel different than how I felt. Marijuana is different, it really helped me.” Fiona Spargo-Mabbs, a drug education charity founder who lost her son Daniel to an accidental MDMA overdose aged 16, called the Duke of Sussex’s comments “worrying”. “Our work is about the under 18s and our concern is that it might send a message that is going to make young people believe that drugs are going to help them with really difficult things,” she said.
