States consider decriminalizing magic mushrooms

Iowa state Rep. Jeff Shipley, who filed a bill in February to decriminalize psilocybin in [Iowa] State, brings up another argument: personal freedom.

“Where did government derive authority to regulate substances to begin with?” he asks … Decriminalization is not the same as legalization; Denver and Oakland will no longer use city money to impose criminal penalties on people age 21 and older who use or possess psilocybin (also called “magic mushrooms”), but selling the substance is still illegal.
