Where magic mushrooms are decriminalized in the U.S.

At the federal level, it is still illegal to cultivate or possess magic mushrooms because they contain the Schedule I substances psilocin and psilocybin, so it is not technically accurate to say that they have been fully decriminalized anywhere in the country…

…several U.S. cities and states have taken steps towards effective decriminalization, loosening the consequences for personal or therapeutic use of the substance and deprioritizing criminal penalties… residents of the District of Columbia approved an initiative which made the “the investigation and arrest of persons 18 years of age or older, for non-commercial planting, cultivating, purchasing, transporting, distributing, engaging in practices with, and/or possessing” psychoactive plants and fungi among the local police department’s “lowest enforcement priorities.”
