Santa Cruz has decriminalized magic mushrooms, ayahuasca, and peyote

Margolin says that advocates believe that selling mushrooms like any other crop will help prevent hiccups that have occurred in the recreational marijuana industry.

“Activists so far prefer that the mushroom industry be ‘abrogated into already existing industries’ … so as to avoid some of the pitfalls that we’ve experienced already with cannabis legalization, where they’re treating cannabis like a whole other crop,” she says. “Now we have over-regulation and people getting pushed out of the industry, and it’s a bigger mess than if they had just treated cannabis like tomatoes.”
