California’s psilocybin legalization campaign OK’d to collect signatures
This year, organizers see an easier path to land on the ballot, citing a lower 546,651 signature threshold, and the absence of pandemic-era roadblocks that made signature gathering more difficult. Volunteers have until Jan. 10, 2024 to meet that goal.
The initiative’s language would legalize the use of psilocybin mushrooms for medical, therapeutic, religious, spiritual, and recreational use for people 21 and older, and set up a statewide framework allowing for retail sales, including at farmers’ markets. Cities and counties would have the option to locally implement bans or limits on mushroom sellers within their jurisdictions. There would be no set possession limits, and psilocybin products used for medical or therapeutic purposes would not be subject to taxes. Products sold recreationally would apply a standard sales tax.
