Oregon Might Legalize Psychedelic Mushrooms

Oregon voters could legalize “magic mushrooms” in 2020

Oregon’s Secretary of State has just approved language for a ballot initiative to legalize psychedelic mushrooms.

If the organizers of the initiative get the required 117,578 signatures, Oregonians could vote on the decriminalization of psilocybin, or “magic mushrooms,” in the 2020 general election.
Recent studies find a single dose of hallucinogenic mushrooms can provide months of relief for cancer patients suffering with severe depression and anxiety.
Clinical trials are also underway to test the effects of psilocybin on alcoholism, addiction and treatment-resistant depression.

“Research into psilocybin is part of a larger trend of promising results in psychedelics-assisted psychotherapy, with once-feared drugs like LSD (acid) and MDMA (ecstasy) getting new life as potential medicine, with growing support for medical and recreational marijuana paving the way,” Rolling stone reports.

“LSD has shown promise as a way to help terminally ill patients prepare for death with less anxiety and fear, and MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD is currently in clinical trials and could be available by prescription as soon as 2021.”

“The intent of the 2020 Psilocybin Service Initiative of Oregon is to advance a breakthrough therapeutic model currently being perfected in research settings at top universities around the world,” write the architects of the initiative, Tom and Sheri Eckert, on the campaign’s website.
Earlier this year, researchers at Johns Hopkins recommended  it be reclassified as Schedule IV, the same category as Xanax.

      There are contraindications for taking mushrooms. That doesn’t mean everyone in the world should be banned from this medicine. Maybe read the research before you decide its some horrible thing.

    Psilocybe cubensis cured my treatment resistant depression after 3 years of struggling and dozens of horrible SSRI antidepressants.

    Let’s see if the big PHARMA douchebags kill this initiative. Effing criminal scumbags

    This medicine helps my husband manage his cluster headache cycles. It’s the only thing that ever worked, doctors don’t know anything about healing, only medicating. I can’t wait to sign the initiative!

    Decriminalization is not the same thing as legalization.

    The bill is only for decriminalization of magic mushrooms, not legalization.

    It is like the government admitting that their policies are wrong, and instead of stepping directly into the light of liberty, they just edge a little closer towards it.
