Decriminalization of Plant Medicines
2019 has been a busy year legislatively for Psychedelics and Plant Medicines. Denver, Oakland and most recently Chicago are all lowering law enforcement priority for Plant Medicines. These recent changes decriminalizes adult use of psychoactive plants and fungi, including mushrooms, cacti, iboga and Ayahuasca. Decriminalization means the city is effectively directing law enforcement not to investigate or prosecute people for the use, sale or distribution of these plants and fungi. Lawmakers say that the resolutions are aimed at education and helping allow expanded access to existing underground networks of doctors, therapists, facilitators and others who help people use psychedelics in safe and responsible ways.
