Why the war on [plants & fungi] must end
Cannabis is just the tip of the drug war iceberg… One of the more exciting aspects of future U.S. drug policy revolves around … psilocybin (magic mushrooms). Last year, Oakland became the second U.S. city (after Denver) to decriminalise magic mushrooms [in addition to other plants and fungi such as [iboga, ayahuasca, psilocybe mushrooms, etc].
There’s a dangerous myth in sections of the public that the war on drugs is coming to an end. It’s an idea that as cannabis legalization sweeps across the U.S. and many other nations around the world, legal prohibitions against drug use and abuse will soon be reduced or removed entirely. In reality, the drug war has never been more ferocious, targeting minorities and the most vulnerable in the U.S. and abroad. [However], in the U.S. in 2018, there were more arrests for marijuana than in 2017, despite 11 states now allowing legal cannabis for citizens over 21 years of age. The FBI released figures that detailed 663,367 marijuana arrests in the country in 2018. [This, despite the fact that] the majority of Americans, according to a number of polls in the last years, now support marijuana legalization.
