Colorado Votes to Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms Today

You know how you tell people out of state that you are from Colorado and they immediately ask about the weed? Well, soon it could be the mushrooms too!

On Tuesday, the citizens of Denver, Colorado, will vote on whether to pass Ordinance 301, which would decriminalize hallucinogenic mushrooms. Specifically, as CNN notes, the ordinance would "deprioritize, to the greatest extent possible" criminal penalties imposed by the City of Denver "for the personal use and personal possession of psilocybin mushrooms."

Furthermore, while the ordinance stops short of legalizing psychedelic 'shrooms, it would "prohibit the city from spending resources to impose criminal penalties" on those who have them.

On its website, Decriminalize Denver says, "Humans have used these mushrooms for thousands of years for healing, rites of passage, spiritual insight, strengthening community, and raising consciousness."
