Colorado Voters Legalize Magic Mushrooms and Other Hallucinogenics

Voters in Colorado have passed an initiative to legalize hallucinogenics including magic mushrooms, DMT and ibogaine.

Proposition 122 legalizes the personal use and possession of several hallucinogenic/entheogenic plants and fungi for those 21 and older. Those include:

  • dimethyltryptamine (DMT);
  • ibogaine;
  • mescaline (excluding peyote);
  • psilocybin; and
  • psilocyn.

In addition to decriminalizing the possession and use of these substances, the initiative would make it so that anyone who was previously convicted for the personal use or possession of such psychedelic plants and fungi would be able to file a petition asking a court to seal the record of the conviction, if they’ve completed their sentence.

Proposition 122 would also:

  • create a natural medicine services program for the supervised administration of such substances;
  • create a framework for regulating the growth, distribution, and sale of such substances to permitted entities; and
  • create the Natural Medicine Advisory Board to promulgate rules and implement the regulated access program.

The measure would not provide for retail sales of such psychedelic plants and fungi.
