How ‘magic mushrooms’ could follow in the footsteps of cannabis

What was something of a taboo issue half a decade ago is now the subject of bills… in more than a dozen states [and more than 10 cities]… “It does feel like cannabis activism 10 years ago,” said Jason Ortiz, executive director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy… just like cannabis, the psychedelics movement faces deep… [discussions] over decriminalization, regulation and social justice. With fears over big marijuana firms dominating the debate, lawmakers and advocates are trying to address similar issues in the psychedelics space.

“Cannabis is a billion-dollar industry in the state and people are still walking around with felonies on their records,” said Oregon state Sen. Akasha Spence Lawrence… who is sponsoring a bill to promote equity in… psilocybin… Oregon led the nation when voters approved a ballot measure in 2020 to legalize and regulate psilocybin therapy, alongside another decriminalizing drug possession more broadly. Voters in cities such as… Oakland and Washington, D.C., [and more than 10 other cities across the United States] have also pulled back on enforcing laws against [growing, gathering, and sharing] magic mushrooms and other plants that contain psychedelic compounds. Now, these ideas have spread to a politically disparate collection of states such as Utah, Missouri, Connecticut, New Jersey, Texas and California.
