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.

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.
It passed!! Yahoo!!
I love to see the world awakening the usage of magic mushrooms it’s good way to awaken you’re pineal gland lol 👁
Hey Complex, could you link me those studies?
Studies like this have been around for much longer than 2012
Colorado makin real moves
Plants shouldn’t be illegal…Penicillin is also extracted from a fungus so y’all can’t be sayin “ohh it’s not a plant”
I hope shrooms make it.
Ill move over there
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
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
I found a way around the law's. Say your a religion. LoL
Bro idk about that…. lmao all I want is weed to be legal. Buuuut idk about this. Let’s make shrooms legal after weed is legal everywhere. Like nationally legal
Looks like it’s time to move to colorado…realistically shrooms should be legalized even if only for medical use they have a lot of benefit for psychiatry
Lol people are going to take this for recreation and then have horrible trips because that's not what the mushrooms want
Legalise, or watch the world burn.
Its already in flames.
If we don't change for the better, our lives will never will be what it could be..
They probably won’t legalize it because there’s a lot of dumb people who would flip out and do stupid shit. Gotta kno what ur getting yourself into
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
It’s a natural fungus. The penalties for it are way overboard
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.
Micro-dosing is the key!!! 👌
I love shrooms, but that's dangerous. Too many weak mind people out there
