Denver to vote this week on decriminalizing magic mushrooms

Voters in Denver, Colorado will decide this week whether to become the first US city to decriminalize the use of ’magic mushrooms’. The initiative, led by Decriminalize Denver, a movement focused on making the mushrooms legal, will appear on municipal election ballots on Tuesday. Psilocybin, referred to as ’magic mushrooms’, has been found to help treat anxiety and depression in cancer patients.

Good, I hope they do legalize it. Weed and shrooms should have never been made illegal in the first place.

hope this fails. not that I care if they are legal. ut that I want some other city to make a big stink about legalizing it and make all the papers first so that all the worthless trash that moves to Denver's just to get pot a few years ago will go somewhere else chasing shrooms.

Abosolutly terrible. Just like Marijuana, shrooms are detrimental to our Society.

I knew a mega intelligent kid at school, went to Amsterdam and binged on shrooms. He completely lost his mind permanently. I sometimes see him wandering the streets looking like a zombie.

I’m libertarian. If people want to do stuff like this it’s their choice. I won’t be partaking and so long as their use doesn’t negatively affect others I couldn’t care less

Love how the side that wants it legalized also wants it tax exempt.

While I support this move how the hell does a City have the power to invalidate state laws?

Never will understand why people want to invest any form of hallucinogen or depressant. I'm against any form of narcotic or drug except for strict medical purpose. You don't need to smoke it or eat it for it's medical effect. Dopers.

I don't mind letting people put whatever poison they want as long as all medical help from Police, Fire, and Hospitals is refused. They can kill themselves if they want but they have no right to take my tax dollars to pay for their 2nd, 3rd or 35th chance. If we simply let junkies die there would be no opioid epidemic, there would be example of why the high is not worth it.

There is a hell of a big difference between mushrooms and pot! I'm a boomer that has seen people on shrooms a few times, and they were MESSED UP enough to put the fear of shrooms in me! Their brains malfunctioning so bad they couldn't be responsible for their actions. I don't even understand why anyone would want to do that. But, hey, it's a naturally occurring plant, so I'm torn. I'm pro pot even tho I don't use it, but would if it would help me medically, but seeing the behavior of people on mushrooms makes me unable to find any positives for them. IDK....

Do not do this. I can neither confirm nor deny knowledge of these things however I can tell you that if, if, you do this, it will result in accidents like you wouldn't believe.

It's their fucking business and their individual choice we shouldn't give the state the power to enforce dumb ineffective shit like this!

Yes, remove yourself from reality. Allow everything to happen around you. Be content. Be docile. Be open minded. Accept it. Obey.

I've done shrooms once. I felt paranoid as hell watching Ice Road Truckers 😄 then I isolated myself in a room and I saw creation happen right before my eyes. Then I was in a state of euphoria for a few months. It was AWESOME!

Legalising mushrooms is a really bad idea, it destroys people's minds. Here comes the zombie generation to a town near you. Not good!
