Colorado Might Decriminalize Magic Mushrooms

Colorado paved the way to a greener, chiller future when it became the first state (alongside Washington) to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Since then, the state has enjoyed literally millions of dollars in tax revenue, and a number of states have followed suit in legalizing weed. Now, Colorado might be poised to continue its trailblazing path by decriminalizing psilocybin, also known as magic mushrooms.

The group Denver for Psilocybin is currently lobbying for the chance to gather signatures to put magic mushrooms on the ballot in the fall, Denver7 ABC News reports. The group met with city leaders on Wednesday about the possibility of decriminalizing the hallucinatory drug, which is currently listed as a Schedule I drug, citing its potential medical and therapeutical uses. Although the group is only advocating for decriminalization for now—which would not make mushrooms legal for recreational use and would instead merely reduce the penalty for possession of the mushrooms in question—it could be the first step to legalization. After all, Colorado and most other states that now allow marijuana use decriminalized the drug first before going all-out on the legal books.

  1. The Bill of Rights includes freedom of religion. Since most people in
    the government/legal field forgot we had a constitution and a bill of
    rights; back in 1993 when the government decided to take peyote away
    from the indigenous, the Freedom of Religion Restoration Act was passed.
    Stealing peyote from indigenous was the catalyst for this act, but it
    is not limited to peyote nor is it limited to indigenous. It is a
    reminder that we do have a Bill of Rights. So…. sacred medicines like
    mushrooms and marijuana have been legal and are legal all across the
    nation. Hopefully those who swore to uphold the law will begin doing
    that instead of bullying people because it is far more profitable. If
    they really want to go after the drugs; throw Monsanto in jail. The
    Nuremberg Trial Papers reveal a "state within a state" consisting of the
    big oil, big pharma, and big agricultural industries. This community of
    interests exists and persists despite common sense. If they really want
    to go after the drugs, preform raids on pharmacies selling Oxycontin.
    Go after the municipal water supply for adding the neurotoxin
    fluoride….. I was suffering skeletal fluorosis, chronic pain in my
    knees…. Since marijuana was most likely the primary ingredient in the
    healing oil of Jesus Christ and since even Joel Osteen has been recorded
    on camera saying the prana of the Bible could be a mushroom, it would
    be really nice if those who swore to uphold the law would begin doing
    that instead of terrorizing people and profiting from it. What a
    wonderful world this COULD be.

  2. Just making shrooms legal and available to the general public is a terrible idea. Only responsible and experienced people should buy and consume these kinds of drugs

  3. I don't give a fuck if it's legal or not. Although it would be awesome if it was legal. I'll still use whatever drug I want anyway. No law is stopping me from havin a good time

  4. Good quality strains
    of shrooms are now available at affordable prices. Don't know if you are
    interested in getting some of the stuff? We do discreet door to door
    delivery to your location. For more info and prices inbox me

  5. No eat soy products for LSD magic mushrooms what cause psychopath schizophrenia possible insomnia leprosy and personally if you already want the help medical marijuana is already a cure it is there for you to quit drugs and it's been proven to stop more problems than anything else I think if this goes too far you might lose it when you start asking for crack cocaine acid meth you were going too far. I do understand mushrooms our nature but be careful at what you choose.
