There’s a growing number of people who are trading in their prescriptions for plants. Magic mushrooms or psilocybin to be exact. Some say the mushrooms have the potential to heal, while others warn about possible dangerous side effects.

Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound that is produced by more than 200 species of magic mushrooms, commonly referred to as ‘shrooms.’ At institutions like John Hopkins University and New York University, clinical trials exploring psilocybin as a therapy for depression, drug addiction, and other anxiety disorders are yielding promising results. California should decriminalize magic mushrooms because addictions and mental illnesses are serious diseases that have the power to ruin lives, and it is important that new solutions become more accessible to those suffering.

Forbes

Denver and Oakland recently passed measures decriminalizing magic mushrooms, and it appears to be part of a larger, slow-moving movement to make psilocybin (the mushrooms’ psychedelic ingredient) available for treatments for depression and other medicinal purposes, and, of course, recreational purposes.

Los Angeles Magazine

Last week, Oakland’s City Council voted unanimously to decriminalize magic mushrooms, making the Bay Area burg the second city in the United States to do so. Unlike the Denver initiative passed in May, Oakland’s resolution will allow people to possess not only psilocybin but also peyote and other psychedelic plants without the added paranoia of being locked up.

East Bay Times

Using psilocybin mushrooms, also known as “magic mushrooms,” as well as ayahuasca and peyote will now be allowed in Oakland, the second city in the country to give the hallucinogenic fungi the OK.

USA Today

First came Denver. And now possibly Oakland, California, will help set the stage for other cities to consider decriminalizing hallucinogenic fungi, or “magic mushrooms.”

San Francisco Chronicle

UCSF psychiatrist Brian Anderson is studying an experimental therapy to help long-term AIDS survivors — people who were infected with HIV in the 1980s and never expected to live this long — who are feeling sad and demoralized.

The Sacramento Bee​

Oakland leaders are meeting on Tuesday night to consider decriminalizing so-called “magic mushrooms.”

Vice

Oakland, California, is poised to become the second American city, after Denver, to decriminalize magic mushrooms.

The Daily Signal

The decision by Denver voters last week to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms marked a significant shift in the debate over legalizing illegal drugs—which up to this point revolved entirely around marijuana.

Rolling Stone

Not long after the polls closed in Denver on Tuesday night, news outlets were reporting that the nation’s first citywide initiative to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms had failed. Disappointment washed over the psychonaut community on social media — the initiative, reports were saying, had lost by 3%. Meanwhile, at least 25% of the votes were still untallied and Decriminalize Denver Field Coordinator Travis Tyler Fluck announced he was “viciously optimistic.” It wasn’t for nothing.

05/11/2019

The Washington Post

 Voters in Denver made history May 7 as the city became the first in the nation to approve an ordinance decriminalizing a psychedelic — psilocybin mushrooms, or “shrooms” — that many thought had disappeared decades ago along with tie-dye and love-ins.

Psychedelic Times

Hot on the heels of the Denver psilocybin vote passing, we connected with Ryan Munevar, director of Decriminalize California. Whereas Denver’s recent victory was citywide, Decriminalize California is working on a statewide initiative that would open magic mushrooms up for cultivation, possession, consumption, and medical research across all of California. Ryan has been a cannabis activist and entrepreneur for many years, and is passionate about ending the unjust drug war on psilocybin and other psychedelics— California first, and then the world.

Denver voters made history once again on Tuesday night by narrowly approving Initiative 301, which decriminalizes the possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms by those over 21 years old.

StopTheDrugWar.org

Hours after numerous media outlets (including us) had the Denver magic mushroom initiative going down to defeat Tuesday night, it managed a near-miraculous last-minute comeback to squeak out a victory by a margin of 50.56% to 49.44%, late Wednesday afternoon, according to unofficial Denver Election Division results.

Marijuana Moment

Activists are seeking legislative assistance in crafting a 2020 ballot initiative to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms for medical and religious purposes in California.
