First weed, now mushrooms
Just in my short lifetime, I’ve seen marijuana rebranded from a super illegal, black market, highly stigmatized substance to one of the most celebrated alternative health and wellness treatments out there. Will legalizing magic mushrooms and other psychedelic drugs be the next big fight? The next big industry for our state?
Colorado decriminalized marijuana long before the drug became legal for medicinal or recreational use, so this seems like a promising start for psilocybin advocates. The people behind the initiative believe the case for legalizing psilocybin is just as strong and valid as the case for legalizing cannabis because of the benefits users report.
