. 🍄 "Free the spores!" The movement to legalize / decriminalize psilocybin-containing "magic mushrooms" is growing. And a dedicated group of people in Denver have been trying to do exactly that, through a grassroots campaign. In fact, they've tried before (unsuccesfully) but have no plans to give up on a fight they believe in.
📰: An initiative that would decriminalize #shrooms
in Denver has received approval from city election officials to begin gathering signatures. Proponents of the measure hope to obtain enough signatures to qualify the measure for the May 2019 ballot.
Kevin Matthews, the campaign manager for #DenverforPsilocybin
stated; 💬 “This is a landmark moment for Denver, for Colorado, and for the country. We have an opportunity here to make some real impact and change in people’s lives..”
If the Denver Psilocybin Mushroom Decriminalization Initiative passes, it would make the possession, use, and propagation of psilocybin mushrooms for adults 21 and older the “city’s lowest law-enforcement priority.”
The measure also will “prohibit the city from spending resources to impose criminal penalties” on those who possess or cultivate psilocybin #mushrooms
for personal use. The measure also creates a city “psilocybin mushroom policy review panel to assess and report on the effects of the ordinance.
Kayvan Khalatbari, a cannabis consultant and dispensary owner and Denver mayoral candidate, said this his campaign has conducted polling on the #psilocybin
issue. 💬 “It is not showing as likely to pass at this point,” Khalatbari says. “But we have to keep in mind that this is prior to an educational campaign. This is prior to us, as a Denver community, having a conversation.”
