Denver group (Denver for Psilocybin) is taking first small steps to make psilocybin legal in Colorado. Currently they are getting the all clear to gather signatures for a ballot initiative.

Some good news from Denver! Organizers claim a ballot proposal to decriminalize mushrooms at the city level has gathered enough signatures to be voted. If certified, the people can vote on it in May.

This time the organization is called "Denver for Psilocybin". Their director, Kevin Matthews, seems like a legit real-life hero. He was helped by mushrooms (like some of us here) and did something about it:

9news wrote:
Matthews, a father of a 4-year-old, said he personally has benefited from the drug to help with depression.

β€œMushrooms have really given me a new lease, a new outlook, a new perception on life,” Matthews said. β€œIt’s made the world a better place for me. It’s not something I use very often, but the experiences I have had have been profound and have radically changed me.”


Best of luck to Kevin and the group he is in. Rights are not given to us, we need to go get them.

A lot of work is left, including door to door campaning for the initiative. They have about 100 volunteers. If I lived in Denver I would look into joining this effort to bring freedom to the people.

Awesome. Wish them all the best and I hope they get something passed. A change in laws that gives access to this medicine to any adult who so chooses to partake. That would be amazing. That has the potential to change the world. I feel like the legalization of recreational cannabis on a state level has opened some doors. Let us hope. Thanks for posting this Loveall. Edit, I read the second article, and the change in law I was daydreaming about is a little different than what they are trying for. Decriminalization is a great place to start!

Yes, agreed, I think decriminalization is a good and resonable first step for mushrooms.

Call me old fashioned, but I kind of like the idea that an individual pursuing this part of nature is going to have to put some personal effort and thought into this endeavor (instead of just walking up to counter and ordering up).

Again, i like Colorado's bill so much better than my state's.

In Oregon, a small cadre of professional psychotherapists are trying to get a bill on the ballot that basically allows them, and only them, to provide mushrooms only within (expensive, non insurance covered) doctor visits. In essence it sets them up as a protected legal class and within an entirely new profession. I don't know where the "medicine" is to be sourced, but they'll set up the supply chain and prices too...

Hell, i know of person that uses them in psychotherapysessions and they provide them for 3X the street value to yuppies with no drug connections... A pretty sweet set-up for that family.

Unfortunately in Oregon the psychedelic societys have been taken over and are controlled by a bunch of greed driven yuppie new-agers who think they know the best for everyone and think they should be in control. (Ask me how i really feelConfused )

Good news, the board of elections certified the signatures and the initiative to decriminalize magic mushrooms in Denver with be on the ballot. Votes will be cast on May 7th.

The first initiative failed. Apparently, something is happening in Oakland now. They seem to be trying to follow Denver's model.

Denver still needs to vote on the current initiative on May 7th. I think that's the next result to look forward to.

Ballots will be cast on in one week. Here is the text the voters will see in the polling booth:


Mile High City wrote:
β€’ Initiated Ordinance 301: Denver Psilocybin Mushroom Initiative
A "yes" vote is a vote in favor of making the adult possession and use of psilocybin mushrooms the lowest law enforcement priority in Denver and prohibiting the city from spending resources on enforcing related penalties.
A "no" vote is a vote against making the adult possession and use of psilocybin mushrooms the lowest law enforcement priority in Denver and prohibiting the city from spending resources on enforcing related penalties.


I wish the good people of Denver make a wise decision. May mother nature and scientific research guide their choice and may they make our common shamanic ancestors proud.

Early ballots are being cast and voting concludes Tuesday. Here is a good place to get updates,

https://www.cpr.org/news...r-in-tuesday-s-election

The green and libertarian parties have supported the decriminalization measure.

A religious conservative think tank (the Centennial Institute) has opposed it. They paint a narrative of mushrooms being "let loose in the streets" (they already grow in parks anyway) and that it could rewire your brain in a harmful manner (have they been reading any of the research coming out or listened to the people who have experienced this ancient medicine?). On the other hand, being in jail is known to cause trauma and have very negative consequences in people's lives.

Disappointinly it failed. Pretty close though, we need 5% of the population to read more science, get more educated, respect personal liberty, respect nature, and change their mind.

Maybe next time. Truth and nature are not going away (hopefully).





Correction: it passed during final vote tally. We are talking about it in this thread.

Super proud of Denver, well done guys.

If only the UK would use science and peer reviewed evidence instead of opinion and personal gain to make their drug laws, I live in hope.
