The California Psilocybin Decriminalization Initiative 2022

Days Until the November 8th, 2022 Election
Volunteers in 58 Counties
Valid Signatures Needed
California Registered Voters


Decriminalize California is a grassroots organization currently working to pass an open-source citizens’ initiative that would decriminalize psilocybin(magic mushrooms) for medical, therapeutic, religious, spiritual and personal use.

If it passed a person 21 years or older would be able to cultivate, possess, distribute, transport, and consume magic mushrooms in the state of California.

If a person wanted to sell them they would need to be a California Registered Business with a California Seller’s permit and grown on land that was eligible for agricultural production and governed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

For the initiative to qualify for the ballot, Decriminalize California will need to gather 623,212 valid signatures from California registered voters to put the initiative on the November 2022 election ballot.

COVID-19 threw a wrench into the gears for us, and the rest of the planet, so we have to push back into late 2021 before we can continue to collect signatures.
