San Francisco Decriminalizes Magic Shrooms and Other Psychedelics

Golden Teachers are making their way into the Golden State. Along with a list of other plant-based medicines.

San Francisco has become the latest U.S. city to decriminalize psychedelics, including psilocybin a.k.a. magic mushrooms.

The resolution was unanimously passed by the city’s Board of Supervisors on September 6, stating that arresting people for using, growing, and distributing plant-based psychedelics like shrooms, ayahuasca, and peyote would be considered “the lowest law enforcement priority”. And that no city resources would be used towards investigations tied to psychedelics.

The resolution also calls on the decriminalization of psychedelics on the state and federal level.

The city joins the company of Detroit, Seattle, Oakland, Denver, and the State of Oregon, as jurisdictions that have decriminalized most psychedelics.

“San Francisco joins a growing list of cities and countries that are taking a fresh look at these plant-based medicines, following science and data, and destigmatizing their use and cultivation,” said San Francisco Supervisor Dean Preston, who introduced the resolution.
