Denver Psychedelics Activists Push To Expand Psilocybin Decriminalization To Allow Gifting And Communal Use
In 2019, Denver became the first US city to decriminalize the possession of psilocybin.
Now, the same activists behind the campaign are on a mission to decriminalize the noncommercial gifting and communal use of psilocybin too.
The activists are also urging legislators to establish first-responder training on psychedelics harm reduction and promote public education on the responsible use of psilocybin.
“Colorado overall is among the worst states in the country in terms of adults experiencing mental health issues…Psilocybin mushrooms, clearly, have the potential to be a novel solution to these issues,” said Kevin Matthews, founder of Vote Nature.
