…government will respond to psychedelics decriminalization petition

That’s the eighth-highest number of signatures an official government petition has received this Parliament. It states that the government should “immediately discontinue enforcement of statutes or regulations that prohibit or impose onerous restrictions on informed adult use, growing, or sharing of any plant or fungi, where an established record of traditional use exists.”

Additionally, legislators should amend federal drug laws to “distinguish and exempt these organisms when used for therapeutic practices, as adjuncts to medical care, for healing ceremonies or solitary spiritual growth and self-development,” it says. The deadline to join the petition passed… with 14,910 signatures.
