Growing up in a Christian family, Laurie Brooks was taught that if you behave yourself, you get to go to heaven.
But as she got older, and fell away from the church, that idea didn’t bring her much comfort.
Last August, Brooks, 53, was told she may only have six months to a year to live after her colon cancer returned. She wanted something to put her mind at ease. So she turned to psilocybin mushrooms.
