He also has a tip for anyone who goes through it.
Millions of dollars of investment are being poured into medical drug research – and Lil Zan is all of it.
The rapper believes mind-altering medications should be legalized to help people fight depression.
“I think mental issues and depression, everyone deals with what is different, and everyone has their own way of dealing with that and things,” he said, after a night at BOA in Los Angeles this week.
“I think we should legalize the drug because I think some people really benefit from the effects of drugs and things, so I’m all for legalizing that.”
The 24-year-old, whose real name is Nicolas Diego Llanos, himself has suffered from depression, as well as drug addiction in the past – hence the stage name; He is now sober and actively speaks out against drug use.
Using one drug while away from another drug can pose a dilemma for him and others trying to avoid compromising their sobriety; Zan agrees that there could be a drug equivalent to “California sober”, in which people avoid alcohol but still smoke cannabis.
He said, “I’d like to tell people – I don’t know a thing about MDMA – but magic mushrooms and things? Try it, maybe.”
“I used to take fine doses too, so, you know, give it a try. If it helps, it helps. If it doesn’t, then maybe you should try to find … like, everyone has a different way of dealing with things.”
Just this week, a study led by Dr. Rick Duplin and published in the Journal of Nature Medicine found that MDMA combined with counseling brought remarkable relief to patients with acute PTSD, according to The New York Times.
This comes against the backdrop of a study in the New England Journal of Medicine that highlighted the benefits of treating depression with psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms.
Both discoveries helped increase the flow of money that is currently being invested in start-up research centers.
As for anyone currently struggling with depression, Zahn had this advice:
“And any advice I will give is that you are not alone, everyone is struggling with these things. I am still treating my mental problems and things, and you are not alone, try to find help in whatever way you can – you are loved. Someone loves you.”
