District Attorney drops felony drug charge against… mushroom [church], citing voter legalization of psilocybin

At an arraignment hearing, a representative of the… District Attorney’s Office said the case was being dismissed against Ben Gorelick “in the interest of justice.” Carolyn Tyler, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, said the dismissal came about “in light of the voters’ decision”… Gorelick was arrested in February after police raided a warehouse in north Denver where he was growing more than 30 different types of psychedelic mushrooms. He had been charged with possession with intent to manufacture or distribute a controlled substance, a first-degree felony.

Gorelick is the founder of The Sacred Tribe, a… religious group that used psilocybin ceremoniously until the police raid last winter [1/10/2022]. Several members of the group were in the courtroom Thursday [12/8/2022] and celebrated when the dismissal was announced. “I don’t know what everything got dismissed on or for. At this point in time, what I can tell you is I’m very, very, very grateful to the DA’s office for dropping the case. It’s been a long year for the community, it’s been a long year for us, and we look forward to getting back to practicing our religion, which is what the whole point of this is,” said Gorelick.
