Denver, Colorado votes in favor of legalizing Magic Mushroom

Denver, a city famous for blazing the trail for marijuana’s legalization in municipalities and states all over the nation, has become the first US city to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, as Mixmag reports.

The advocacy group Decriminalize Denver submitted petitions to Denver’s Election Division back in January in order to get a measure on the city’s ballot during its May election that would decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms.

A vote for “yes” on “Initiated Ordinance 301, Psilocybin Mushroom Initiative” which appeared on Tuesday’s ballot would make “adult possession and use of psilocybin mushrooms the lowest law enforcement priority in Denver” and would prohibit the city “from spending resources on enforcing related penalties.” This means while possession of psilocybin mushrooms is still technically illegal, cops will not take much notice if they find an individual in possession of them.
