Arcata public safety committee backs decriminalizing psychedelic plants, fungi

Dr. James Latham said he was reached by another member of Decriminalize Nature Humboldt to provide the physician’s perspective… just like cannabis, decriminalization is the first step, Latham said.

“With deprioritization, you mentioned people healing and having access to that healing. Could someone come to your office and say, ‘I’m really struggling with depression and you would administer mushrooms or whatever the form it takes?” Vice-Chairperson Melissa Lazon inquired. “Or is that something that they would do in the privacy of their home? Is this monitored? What does that look like?” … “Oftentimes it would be in the privacy of their home,” Larry Norris [of Decriminalize Nature] replied. “Reason being is that on top of the laws, even the state and federal laws, there are licensure issues, insurance issues and the (Food and Drug Administration) trials are still two to five years out… so this isn’t something that we would necessarily be doing in an office setting or therapeutic setting.”
