Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says recent support for his campaign from comedian Joe Rogan is unrelated to his new proposal for a “DMT for All” law.
“While I greatly appreciate Mr. Rogan throwing his support behind my presidential run, this is in no way related to my new plan to provide free DMT to all taxpayers,” said Sanders. “The ability to plumb the depths of the imagination through a mind-altering psychedelic trip is a basic human right that every American deserves.”
DMT, or N,N-Dimethyltryptamine, is a hallucinogenic compound found in ayahuasca and many plant species. It is often referred to as the “spirit compound” or “God drug” due to the intense hallucinations users experience.
While Sanders hasn’t yet revealed the details of how he will pay for the plan, some experts say options include raising taxes on snowflakes and weekly pay-per-view fights between Sanders and Conor McGregor.
“Sanders is the only candidate who will help us step outside of our bodies and experience birth, life, and death in an instant without ever having to die,” Rogan announced on Twitter. “Any candidate who does that has my support.”
