Zero psilocybin [mushroom] arrests in Denver first month after decriminalization

From 2016 to 2018, the Denver Police Department arrested about fifty people per year for psilocybin-related offenses.

The Denver City Attorney’s Office is still analyzing the ballot language and will present its findings to law enforcement and the mayor’s office. “We’re set to hear expert input in coming weeks to understand what ‘personal use’ and ‘possession with intent to distribute’ should possibly mean under the law,” wrote Ryan Luby, spokesman for the city attorney’s office, in an email to Westword.
