California Senate Approves Bill To Legalize Possession Of Psychedelics Like Psilocybin And LSD

California Senate passed a bill that would make it lawful to possess and socially share psychedelic substances including psilocybin, LSD, DMT, MDMA, and ibogaine. If enacted, the state Department of Health would establish a working group to study and recommend regulatory systems that California could use to promote safe and equitable access to the substances. The working group’s recommendations would be due by the beginning of 2024. However, an activist group aims to put forward an initiative to legalize the use and sale of psilocybin mushrooms on California’s 2022 ballot.
