Denver mushroom decriminalization initiative [took] the lead
On average, 50 people were arrested in each of the last three years by Denver police for the sale or possession of psilocybin… Eleven of those cases were prosecuted.
“One of the folks very much involved with our campaign was one of those people,” says Sovine-Miller. “[He] was arrested and thrown in jail, and still to this day has ramifications in his life for what he can and cannot do because of psilocybin.” … “It starts by forcing the conversation and protecting access,” says Cindy Sovine, a political consultant who worked on the initiative. “Whether you’re using this plant for a medical reason, or a spiritual reason, or a recreational reason, you should not be going to jail or losing your children for it.”
