If the founding fathers had thought the government would make this illegal, they would’ve put it in the Bill of Rights… For Jeff Hayner, one of the City Council members who sponsored the resolution, the decision also came down to not straining the city’s already limited police budget. “What’s the harm if someone wants to grow mushrooms in their basement and make tea once a month – who cares? We shouldn’t be paying people to prosecute someone for that,” he says.
On September 21, 2020, the City Council of Ann Arbor, Michigan, voted to decriminalize all entheogenic plants, including magic mushrooms, ayahuasca, ibogaine, mescaline, and peyote. Now, crimes related to these substances will be local police’s lowest priority, and related prosecutions already underway will be halted.
