Magic Mushrooms… soon be used

This is one reason why some advocates believe that decriminalization is… even necessary… “A very large percentage of the people interested in psychedelic medicines can, with the right education and settings, do this work safely on their own or with a peer”. -Daniel McQueen

“…decriminalization lets us begin to have that dialogue. When we take it out of the underground there is more chance of people coming forward.” Kevin Matthews credits tripping on mushrooms, plus the community support he received during his experiences, with helping him move through a major depressive episode. “This is about building community,” he says. “And about individuals having access to something that can dramatically shift their lives for the better if they need something like that.” Although the decriminalization of psilocybin [mushrooms] is already in effect in Denver, advocates say their work is far from over. Groups for psychedelic enthusiasts and peer-integration circles can be found in many major U.S. cities.
