Colorado Votes to Legalize Magic Mushrooms

The road to legalization for magic mushroom and other psychedelics seems like it changes by the week. Thankfully, for the most part, it’s leading in the right direction. 

The State of Colorado recently passed Proposition 122, on Nov. 8, 2022, making it the second U.S. state to legalize psilocybin mushrooms. The first state to do so was Oregon. 

It will allow people 21+ to grow and share psychedelic mushrooms, as well as create state-regulated centers where people could make appointments to consume psilocybin. 

“Colorado voters saw the benefit of regulated access to natural medicines, including psilocybin, so people with PTSD, terminal illness, depression, anxiety and other mental health issues can heal,” co-proponents, Kevin Matthews and Veronica Lightening Horse Perez.

Kudos to Colorado for helping pave the way. It’s worth reminding that they were the first state to legalize marijuana a decade ago.

It should be noted that the sale or purchase of shrooms remains illegal in Colorado – only the free gifting/sharing of it is legal.
