California bill builds on reforms that could herald the surprisingly fast collapse of psychedelic prohibition
SB 58; Ash Kalra… is a principal co-author… co-authored by assembly members Buffy Wicks… Evan Low… Matt Haney… Alex Lee… Isaac Bryan… Lola Smallwood-Cuevas…
Senator Wiener is a leader within a larger movement to end the so-called “War on Drugs and its failed and destructive policies.” He’s also advocated for opening “safe consumption sites” for users of both legal and illegal narcotics in San Francisco and Oakland… unlike the Oregon and Colorado initiatives, S.B. 58 would not authorize state-licensed businesses where people can obtain and use psychedelics. But it would remove the threat of arrest or prosecution for users of the covered psychedelics, and it would allow noncommercial production and sharing. It imposes limits of two grams for psilocybin or psilocyn, four grams for fungi containing psilocybin or psilocyn, two grams for DMT, 15 grams for ibogaine, and four grams for mescaline.
