At the 2016 Glastonbury Festival, Dr. David Nutt, formerly the Chairman of the UK's Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, gave a presentation in which he illustrated the safety of psychedelic drugs, particularly when compared with alcohol. He also points out that religion has led directly to today's alcohol businesses and says, "The drinks industry is keen to keep its monopoly over drugs. And it fought battles over the last 150 years to make sure that no other drug got into the market. When acceptable versions of drugs like opium and cannabis and cocaine became available to the public, systematically, the drinks industry created opposition to them, created fear about them, and eventually got them banned."
