Denver became the first city to decriminalize psilocybin in May
It’s once again a flash from the past—just like with cannabis in 1975, Colorado is leading the country in deciding to decriminalize another psychoactive federally illegal drug. This time, it’s psilocybin.
Denver became the first city to decriminalize psilocybin in May, 2019, when the city and county of Denver voters enacted Ordinance 301 to make adult personal possession and use of psilocybin the lowest law enforcement priority, and prohibit the city and county from spending resources on enforcing any related penalties.
Decriminalize Nature Colorado, an educational campaign funded by donations to inform individuals about the value of entheogenic plants and fungi with the intention of proposing a resolution to decriminalize “our relationship to nature,” submitted a proposed ballot initiative to the Secretary of State’s Office on January 28 that sought to decriminalize the possession, use and facilitation of entheogens in the state—a term which is generally regarded as safer “regulator-speak” for psilocybin.
Decriminalize Nature has a track record for this cause—Decriminalize Nature D.C. helped get the psilocybin decriminalization initiative, Initiative 81, passed in D.C. in March, 2021
