Massachusetts… magic mushrooms

I know what you’re thinking, but the idea is actually not as crazy as it sounds. In the past [9 months], Denver, Oakland, and Santa Cruz have each voted to decriminalize natural psychedelics, including mushrooms … momentum is building, and we will likely continue to hear more about this. When we do, we shouldn’t be afraid.

“I think that society is going to need a decade or so of really growing more comfortable with controlled medical use of psychedelics before they move to some sort of licensed legalization,” he says. “But I think the decriminalization initiatives do make sense right away.” -Rick Doblin, PhD
