…Colorado’s foremost shrooms advocates won’t be voting to legalize psilocybin

…the folks with Decriminalize Colorado, who believe a “corporate takeover” will make psychedelics more expensive and less accessible, and ultimately render treatment less equitable.

“I’m not here to create a new industry that’s only going to serve the rich and powerful,” Melanie Rose Rodgers said (who in 2019 was part of the team that convinced Denver voters to decriminalize the use and possession of shrooms.) “We’ve already seen it with cannabis – who owns the licensing and who’s in jail?” Because the Natural Medicine Health Act… by New Approach PAC… establishes an advisory panel to work with regulators to build the new framework, Initiative 61 co-proponent Nicole Foerster said it “places something that is currently held in community, by many, into the hands of very few people.” …Rodgers pointed out another potential sticking point with the Natural Medicine Health Act: Cities and counties would be prohibited from banning the establishment of healing centers. (In Oregon, several jurisdictions are trying to do just that.)
