California Considers the Legalization of Magic Mushrooms

California Considers the Legalization of Magic Mushrooms

Sacramento, CA

In late August, paperwork was filed with the state attorney general’s office that would exempt those 21-years of age and older from criminal penalties for using, possessing, selling, transporting or cultivating a hallucinogenic compound identified as psilocybin, found in some species of mushroom. 

Although magic mushrooms carry the negative connotations associated with the 1960s and 70s, according to a report in New York magazine, new studies of the compound have led to, “lasting improvements to mental health and the abatement of serious psychological issues.” 

Before the measure can be considered for the 2018 election, supporters must gather at least 365,880 signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot.
