San Francisco supervisors vote to decriminalize shrooms… other plant-based psychedelics
The San Francisco Board of Supervisor Dean Presston said that “San Francisco joins a growing list of cities and countries that are taking a fresh look at these plant-based medicines, following science and data, and destigmatizing their use and cultivation. Today’s unanimous vote is an exciting step forward.”
Decriminalizing plant-based psychedelics is not as culturally extreme a move as the safe-injection and safe-consumption sites that San Francisco seems likely to move forward upon (nor will it have nearly the impact in terms of limiting morbidities and mortalities). But it does normalize and destigmatize an emerging and increasingly accepted form of therapy, so it is – and we mean this in a good way – truly a feel-good measure.
