Why psychedelic researchers should not push back against decriminalization

“Keeping the politics out” is a rhetorical move we should always be skeptical of, particularly so in the realm of psychedelics. This move tries to turn a blind eye to the reality that the criminalization of psychedelics and other drugs in the 1960s, leading up to the draconian Controlled Substances Act, wasn’t driven by scientific evidence…

[2019] marks the success of the first two citywide decriminalization initiatives for naturally- occurring psychedelics in the United States: psilocybin mushrooms in Denver, Colorado; and psychedelic plants and fungi in Oakland, California (Santa Cruz followed Oakland at the beginning of 2020). This means that the cultivation, possession, and consumption of these plants and fungi by adults has officially become the lowest law-enforcement priority.
