[61.1% of] Detroit voters… decriminalized magic mushrooms and other ‘entheogenic’ plants

More than 53,000 Detroit voters voted yes on Proposal E… residents turned out to decriminalize the possession and therapeutic use of entheogenic plants, which includes psilocybin “magic” mushrooms, peyote, mescaline, ayahuasca, and dimethyltryptamine, or DMT.

Only until naturally occurring psychedelics are legalized will we be able to regulate them, which includes the buying, selling, and distribution of such plants. As to when that could be, well, it’s hard to say. If you look at Michigan, we approved medical marijuana in 2008 for patients with qualifying conditions. It took a decade for 56% of voters to approve statewide legalization, which we did in 2018, with recreational cannabis sales starting in December 2019.
