We told you decriminalization isn’t risky!

Denver may ease magic mushrooms laws further two years after decriminalization

It’s been over two years since Denver decriminalized mushrooms, and a recent report shows that people are using psilocybin responsibly.

The Denver Psilocybin Mushroom Policy Review Panel, which is comprised of local officials, law enforcement, and scientific experts, unanimously agreed that there’ve been no significant public health or safety risks as a result of the reform.

The panel proposed that the city’s next steps should be to train first responders to respond to psychedelic crises, create public service announcements on psychedelic safety, and deprioritize the sharing, gifting, and communal use of psilocybin, among other recommendations.

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.

You (probably) won’t get arrested for tripping in these cities ;)

Psychedelics Decriminalization Advancing In Three More Cities, Spanning From Coast To Coast

Cities across the US are taking the first step toward legalizing psychedelics –  deprioritization.

Under state and federal laws, it is still illegal to use, possess, transport, or cultivate entheogenic drugs like psilocybin mushrooms, but many cities are passing resolutions to make investigating these cases the lowest priority of law enforcement.

So far, psilocybin is deprioritized in Denver, Oakland, Santa Cruz, Washington DC, Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, Somerville, Cambridge, and Northampton. Easthampton, Massachusetts; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Arcata, California will likely be the next to join the list as early as this fall.
