Psilocybin mushroom push in Denver gains momentum

Magic mushrooms are inching closer to the ballot in Denver, Colorado. Five advocates there, sponsoring a ballot initiative that would allow Denverites to vote this November on it, want to make mushrooms about as legal as cannabis and alcohol. And they’re succeeding. ​”I’m like 99 percent sure it’s going to be on the ballot,” says Tyler Williams, the campaign’s co-manager.

“It’s so much less dangerous than alcohol,” says Devin Alvarez, one of the sponsors. “It can be confusing if you’re not in the right set and setting. But you’re not getting aggressive.” He is also pledging to donate a portion of the sales from his CBD business, Straight Hemp, to the cause, one of three business people who’ve pledged money, the group says. The group is having regular strategy meetings, have named a social media director and is consulting with policy advisors. They have named a field director responsible for coordinating the volunteers who will try to gather the 5,000 valid signatures they need.
