A ballot measure was filed at the California State Attorney General’s Office in August that could decriminalize psilocybin, more commonly known as “magic mushrooms,” or “shrooms”.
As of October 31, 2017 organizers of the bill can start gathering the 365,880 signatures needed before it can be put to a vote in California in 2018. It would allow those who are 21 & up to use, possess, sell, transport, and cultivate the drug.
Analysis says that legalization of mushrooms could reduce law enforcement costs by millions while earning the state millions in taxes.
“Shrooms” are often used as a recreational drug with effects that can include euphoria and an altered thinking process. They have also been used medicinally for those neurological disorders such as cluster headaches.
