Robert J. Barnhart is the producer and creator of a new documentary called A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin, which explores helping terminally ill cancer patients who are suffering from end-of-life anxiety with psilocybin. Psilocybin is a psychedelic compound found in mushrooms around the world, and is currently classified as a schedule 1 drug – making unavailable and illegal for anyone to use. Roberts film tells not only the science and history behind the drug, but the story of the patients who go through this treatment, the process, and the benefits they received from it.
