Yes the day has finally come where psilocybin has been decriminalized. In Colorado the law states:
1. Psilocybin is decriminalized for individuals 21 and over for personal possession, growing, sharing, and use, but not the sale of.
2. Five natural psychedelic substances are decriminalized including two substances found in psychedelic mushrooms: psilocybin and psilocin, and three plant-based psychedelic substances dimethyltryptamine (DMT), ibogaine, and mescaline.
3. The state allows the supervised use of psychedelic mushrooms by individuals aged 21 and over at licensed facilities and require the state to create a regulatory structure for the operation of these licensed facilities. These facilities will start popping up around 2024.
4. The state is allowed to expand the types of substances that may be used in licensed facilities to include the use of additional plant-based psychedelic substances: dimethyltryptamine (DMT), ibogaine, or mescaline, starting in 2026.
5. Penalties will be established for individuals under the age of 21 for possessing, using, or transporting natural psychedelic substances and for individuals aged 21 and over who allow underage access to these substances.
Apparently the state has tasked a department which deals with insurance and banking to oversee the regulation and penalties of psychedelics. This department, DORA, "will also be responsible for writing regulations governing the cultivation and manufacturing of psychedelic mushrooms, as well as protecting consumers, developing public education campaigns and making recommendations to the legislature about how to shape the industry". This literally has nothing to do with what they usually work with and so how can a department that knows nothing about natural occurring substances be in charge of regulation. Governor Jared Polis has tried to come up with a solution by creating a "Natural Medicine Advisory Board" to help in the advisement of DORA. There is also a $700,000 budget to enlist more resources and expertise. Sounds like they really want to do it right, let's hope they can all put their knowledge and heads together and come up with a fair solution.
