First came the weed. Now, maybe it’s the mushrooms.
After a few rousing chants of “free the spores,” a small group of roughly 20 citizens filtered into the Denver city and county building Monday for a meeting with city officials and emerged knowing they may soon have the all-clear to gather signatures on a measure to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms.


Tourism in Colorado will mushroom. As will their tax revenues and mental health of the residents. Denver is the perfect place for the ATS meet up.

Agreed....

What in the world could possibly go wrong with this...? Mr. enlightened guy you really think we need people hallucinating while driving ? It will/has/is happening you know. Now it would be Pell Mell...

They'd probably end up throwing their guns over a cliff... Then just walk the streets, looking for 'left wingers' to hug and have deep & meaningful with...

I can see them making them legal medically, but think you should have a card signed by a doctor for the shrooms. I know where to find similar chemistry in foods, but it is much less potent.

Some of the right moves.

Maybe one day, places like Denver will let their residents collect rainwater on their own land.

Maybe just a mandatory education course to be able to legally 'purchase'... Though, obtaining by other means should be totally legal, without government regulation.

Shroom chemistry can be a medicine, but it also can mess people up pretty bad. I wouldn't think it would be good to drive with shrooms or even be acceptable to be out in public like that. It kind of messes with reasoning of most people, but actually helps those who have a medical condition that it actually helps.

They should put a staunch age limit similar to alcohol if this goes through. The mushrooms require far more responsibility to safely indulge. A naive teenager could really ruin their life off one bad trip. As long as they put the correct limitations in place then I don't see too big of a problem. They need a system to monitor purchases and they should require I.D.

This isn't the type of party drug that you want to or should do everyday.

I am loving this progressive approach to drugs that are virtually harmless and have actual documented benefits like psilocybin and cannabis.

Very very interesting. I know someone that has removed a lifetime of severe depression and anxiety, with something called micro-dosing, after years of meds, doctors, chaos within their lives.

When I saw them, awhile back I couldn't believe how good they looked, and that they had their life on track for 3 years. I asked how they did it and they told me. I actually had to look it up because I never heard of it till then.

So it appears Denver maybe a state that sees medicinal value in certain things found in nature, that actually helps people. I still think discernment and responsibility need to play out.

Don't agree with this move. Weed is one thing, it's been everywhere forever. Whoever is going to smoke it already was. Worst case scenario it puts you to sleep. Shrooms? That's a different story. It's a psychedelic. Some won't be able to handle that.

Going by the murals that were in the airport, maybe its not such a good idea!

Looks like they are trying to do away with a felony charge related to possession, but I have to agree with Intrepid this is something that puts people into altered states, if the doses are high enough.

I still think anyone operating under the influence needs to go to jail, because it involves so many other people's live, however if they are doing it on their own time, and safely, then it's their choice.



The group calls itself Colorado for Psilocybin after the fungi’s scientific name. Their proposed measure would do away with felony charges for people caught with mushrooms, and make them the lowest enforcement priority for Denver police.

No doubt, in that case. I'm packing my indoor tinted shades and Niacin remedy even as I type. Or at least imagining I will. All we would need for the perfect bad trip is a Mushroom Bar in the airport, near the scary Bad-Mojo Murals.

I thought there was still radiation in the water in parts of Colorado!
