Wall Street is rising further, led by excitement around tech stocks and a surge for Facebook’s parent company. The S&P 500 was 1.4% higher Thursday, a day after hitting its highest level since the summer. The Dow was lagging because it has less of an emphasis on tech. Several Big Tech companies are set to report their results after trading closes for the day, including Apple, Amazon and Google’s parent company. Stocks had already been on the upswing through the start of the year on hopes that the Federal Reserve may soon pause on its hikes to interest rates.

Growing numbers of people are flocking to U.S. churches that center their practice around a bitter psychedelic tea known as ayahuasca. Organizers and their legal advisers argue a 2006 Supreme Court ruling protects them from prosecution and participants say they are taking part in a religious service. Some experts raise concerns that the benefits of ayahuasca haven’t been well studied. Many who attend the ceremonies, which can last for days, argue their experience on the illegal substance brings them closer to God than they ever felt at traditional religious services. Surveys have also found many come away feeling better afterwards, with some saying it helped with depression and problems with risky substance use.
