[50%] want to decriminalize mushrooms… [for personal use]

Twenty months after Denver voters approved decriminalizing psychedelic mushrooms, the leader of that surprisingly successful campaign has set his sights on statewide decriminalization… will also be doing some of the follow-up required for Denver’s decriminalization effort, working with law enforcement officials on the city’s Psilocybin Mushroom Policy Review Panel to collect data for Denver City Council on the effects of the ordinance’s passage. “With the arrest data, the hospital visit data, that’s trending very much toward no health or safety risks,” he says.

“Shall there be a change to the Colorado Revised Statutes concerning psilocybin mushrooms, decriminalizing sale and possession for personal use of psilocybin mushrooms by persons 21 and older; allowing qualified mental health providers to authorize access to psilocybin mushrooms for people with depression, anxiety, and other qualifying conditions including terminal illnesses; enacting necessary fees and licenses for qualified medical facilities run by qualified owners; requiring the State to license and regulate cultivation, processing and sales of psilocybin mushrooms as well as impose penalties for violations of such regulations; and requiring that a review panel appointed by the Governor report annually on the implementation of this revised statute?”
