The legal status of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms is constantly changing. Many states in which legalization would have been impossible to think of a couple of years ago, now have rules that decriminalize the possession and the usage of magic mushrooms. There are some that have already legalized the consumption of psilocybe. Here are a few things to know about how the decriminalization and legalization process started and what can be expected in the future:
- How the process started – According to experts cultivating magic mushroom spores, the movement to decriminalize magic mushrooms started in 2010. Denver, Colorado became the first city in the USA to decriminalize magic mushrooms in 2019. The process of reaching that legal status took about a decade, but it accelerated considerably afterwards, with Oakland, Santa Cruz, Washington DC, and many others joining the movement of legalizing or at least decriminalizing the possession and the usage of magic mushrooms.
- The present and the future – the tendency is definitely towards decriminalization, probably followed by legalization under controlled circumstances in many states. The picture is so diverse now that you should check the policy in your state as well as the legal status of magic mushrooms in your municipality to have accurate information.
