Colorado has just become the second state to decriminalize the use and possession of magic mushrooms.

Washington examiner reports. The state of Colorado has decriminalized some hallucinogenic plants and fungi, including magic mushrooms, becoming the second state to do so.

Psilocybin, psilocyn, and ibogaine, which naturally have hallucinogenic effects when consumed, will be decriminalized for adults 21 and older if they use, possess, grow, and transport them. Although Proposition 122 does not allow for the retail sale of such substances, the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies will be responsible for establishing a therapeutic psychedelics program that will allow people to receive psilocybin and psilocyn at licensed healing centers.

Individuals cannot operate motor vehicles under the influence of psychedelics or use them in public settings other than those that are licensed.

The initiative, sponsored by Natural Medicine Colorado, is intended to provide veterans with PTSD, terminally ill patients, and adults with depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges with regulated access to natural psychedelic medicines that are safe and effective.”

While there are many negatives to psychedelic mushrooms and other substances there are many who boast the potential for medical treatments of mental disorders from them.

PEW trusts reported. As a result of promising research, lawmakers in other states and cities are considering loosening restrictions on psilocybin. A few states want to legalize psilocybin treatment for all adult patients, while others want to limit it to veterans or others with PTSD. Other states have formed task forces to study the issue.

Psilocybin and other psychedelics have been shown to have beneficial effects on mental health and other conditions such as PTSD, anorexia, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and addiction. In indigenous cultures around the world, psychedelics have been incorporated into spiritual rituals for hundreds of years.

In 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration named psilocybin a “breakthrough therapy” in treatment for severe depression, a designation the agency applies to drugs that in early trials demonstrate substantial improvement over existing treatments.

It appears that the country, after fully embracing the marijuana cause, is now moving towards the full legalization of psychedelic substances for medical uses, and other treatment plans for mental maladies. But there will remain strong proponents, and opponents on both sides of the argument when it comes to the legitimate use of such substances. The fear is that the continued legalization of drugs will further lead to a degradation of society, one that the left desperately hopes for.
