Based on the rest of the conversation thread, I'm assuming you're joking? But I'll say just for clarification: our group does not encourage the manufacture or consumption of psychedelics at our events. Both of these activities would be illegal.

There is technically no such thing as a "legal" psychedelic compound, even if it's completely new. Congress was tired of playing cat and mouse as chemists invented more drug analogues, so they passed the Analogue Act which makes any compound illegal under the same schedule as any analogues. Technically this makes serotonin and several other compounds found in our brains illegal under the analogue act.
