Aaron Rodgers insists ayahuasca is “not a drug” and says he may be “called back” to take it again.

Aaron RodgersWeekly appearances on “The Pat McAfee Show” during the 2021 season were largely focused on His stance on COVID-19.

This year, it looks like ayahuasca will be the topic.

After Rodgers revealed on this off-season podcast He used a herbal drug in the past And credited for his last two seasons, there has been a lot of interest around him.

The interest only continued after Packers players were led by wide receiver Allen Lazard Had a party in the end zone During the team’s win over the Bears on Sunday night, which appeared to pay tribute to the quarterback’s off-season activities.

Lazard used the soccer ball as if he was pouring the drink into the players’ hands and then acted as if they had a reaction to it, some of them falling to the ground.

Rodgers spoke in detail about the celebration and continued, as he put it, “a little shadow” On why he claims ayahuasca is not a drug And why shouldn’t it get a bad reputation.

Aaron Rodgers celebrates with his teammates after Allen Lazard’s relegation.

Rodgers said he spoke with Lazard about their private celebration two years ago.

But Rodgers said on Friday, “Allen kind of spread that to the rest of the guys so I knew they were doing something.”

And when he saw what they were doing on Sunday, “Rodgers just wanted to go in there and get involved.”

Rodgers explained, however, that when his colleagues were doing this particular celebration, he wanted to make sure he wasn’t “sending the wrong message” about ayahuasca.

“You do not stand drinking, and enjoy this revival of Jesus, and are slain in the Spirit. It is not so.

“You don’t have some instant fainting into oblivion.”

“You’ve got some amazing reactions,” Rodgers said after taking ayahuasca and later joked that on the field he might have “started the medicine circulating inside me” again after celebrating as a Packers continued to defeat the Bears, 27-10.

What is ayahuasca and is it illegal in the US?

According to the Foundation for Alcohol and Drugsayahuasca is a liquid narcotic that can cause a person to hallucinate. The active chemical in ayahuasca is dimethyltryptamine (DMT).

Aaron Rodgers says ayahuasca and marijuana should not be classified as drugs

on me Tuesday show When McAfee asked Rodgers about ayahuasca and referred to it as a dope, he stopped the host.

He said that labeling ayahuasca, such as marijuana, or other plant substances, as medicine is a “game-word” that adds biases to it as opposed to medicines like aspirin or a cough medicine made with prescription drugs.

“Ayahuasca is not a drug,” Rodgers said emphatically. “It has properties that have hallucinogenic powers. But it is not a drug. We are talking about plants here.

“It’s a very important point to make. This is how words are created in society to create a certain bias against certain things. I think it’s important to continue with this ridiculous shade of how words are used to create prejudice. These biases create fears and these fears prevent people from Doing their own research or having their own ideas and the truth about a situation.”

Rodgers said he will likely be called to take ayahuasca again

Rodgers said that if he was “called” again to take ayahuasca, he would do so again.

“Once you sit down with the drug once, you kind of know what that feeling is to learn more lessons…Some people sit 100 days in a row and still feel years and years on the road to keep doing it. I had a beautiful experience and I’m sure it’s It won’t be the last.”

He also said he didn’t do ayahuasca with Packers coach Matt LaFleur, but would if asked to.
