I don't see the establishment fearing it.
I heard people saying similar things about the popular miracle drug, Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) as well. (While I recall reading a story at the time about it being manufactured and smuggled in diplomatic bags from Israel in one case, I can't recall if there were any arrests). -But because it was a youth rave drug which people liked, users dubbed it with a bogus seal of anti-establishment legitimacy, from what I could tell, based on nothing more than they felt naughty while using it, aware that their parents probably were scared for their safety and would disapprove if they knew. I don't remember any culture of dodging raids and police crackdowns, however.
The establishment reaction was similar with LSD; now THERE's a drug with a long and uncontested historical record of being promoted by the government on the sly. The CIA created and distributed hundreds of thousands of doses to the American populace, under the guise of it being 'counter-culture', a way to fight The Man. -While being distributed by The Man himself, who kept long and detailed notes on the results. (Later destroyed when lawsuits started being filed, after a key chemical weapons scientist 'fell' from a hotel window.)
And who is the establishment today? It's an open secret that Silicone Valley is run on micro-dosing like it's no big deal. I don't hear of any arrests, however, or that psilocybin is particularly feared. The government run national radio station in Canada is actually giving the stuff excellent spin.
Interesting to hear the CBC is towing this line now, too. Soon, gender dysphoric kids will be given a BLM handbook and a sheet of acid by their state-sponsored 'therapist'.
And for a brief history of the PTB's creation of the psychedelics movement, here's a pretty good one:
