Denver Is Voting on Whether to Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms

Denver, Colorado may become the first city in the U.S. to decriminalize shrooms — if a new initiative gets voted through.
It’s only one city, but the vote suggests that Americans are coming around to a more progressive view on recreational — and potentially therapeutic — psychoactive drugs.
If passed, Initiative 301 would decriminalize personal use and possession of mushrooms containing the psychoactive compound psilocybin. But wouldn’t legalize the growth or distribution of the shrooms, according to Vox — so it’d fall short of the full-throated legalization of marijuana that Colorado embraced in 2014.
