[Now]… a second U.S. City decriminalizes magic mushrooms, other psychedelics

The idea that mushrooms and other psychedelic drugs might be decriminalized seemed almost laughable a few years ago, when activists in even the most progressive states were fighting tooth and nail to legalize marijuana.

“This initiative aims to empower the Oakland community by restoring their relationship to nature,” reads a city council analysis of the decriminalization law. “Decriminalizing nature provides individual and community sovereignty to explore different levels of the human experience, including mystical and spiritual states of consciousness.” … The pace of reform is therefore pretty amazing, and a bright spot in our current political moment.
