New York lawmaker files bill to decriminalize [a single, isolated, psychedelic compound found in fungi]
A New York lawmaker recently introduced a bill to decriminalize psilocybin… by removing the main active ingredient from the state’s list of controlled substances.
“Many cities, including Denver, CO, Santa Cruz, CA, and Oakland, CA, have already decriminalized the use and possession of psilocybin, and New York should do the same,” it continues. “With the opportunity to positively affect the lives of millions suffering with mental health and addiction issues, this bill will decriminalize…”; [it’s] one of a… handful of psychedelics reform bills that have been filed in state legislatures across the U.S. amid a national grassroots push to decriminalize entheogenic plants and fungi. [However], the text of this latest reform measure in New York would simply remove psilocybin from the state’s controlled substances law… unanswered questions. For example, so-called magic mushrooms contain a variety of additional compounds, including psilocin, which would remain prohibited under the proposal.
