Denver residents rally to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms

U.S. & World

DENVER, CO (KUSA) The campaign to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms in Denver, Colorado says it has enough signatures to make the May 2019 municipal ballot. 

Denver for Psilocybin turned in those 8,000 signatures to the elections office Monday, following a rally outside of the Capitol building.

Right now, the FDA classifies psychedelic mushrooms as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for substances it says has no medicinal value. That’s the same category as heroin and cocaine.

The elections office has 25 days to verify they have collected the 4,729 valid signatures needed to make the ballot.
