Iowa… lawmaker’s psilocybin decriminalization amendment defeated in floor vote
The House ultimately rejected the proposal in a 17-76 vote.
“The broad bipartisan support of both rural Christians and inner city progressives proves that psilocybin is the issue that can heal our politically fractured society,” [said] Shipley. “These reforms are needed immediately to create the healing our country is desperate for.” During his speech on the amendment, the lawmaker said he was introducing it because “our world is hurting. Humanity—our collective pain, generational traumas, are oozing and festering across our globe.” “I suspect this could be, in part, because the fact our governing institutions have outlawed, prohibited, naturally occurring healing tools,” he said. “In this chamber, we’re great at writing laws, adding new sections of code—rarely do we eliminate laws or revisit laws that we’ve passed.”
