Somerville City Council unanimously passed a resolution to de-prioritize enforcing laws against adults using magic mushrooms, iboga, and more.
While the resolution makes enforcing psychedelic use among adults a low priority, it does not call for the commercial sale of psychedelics. It also does not authorize possession or distribution near schools, nor driving while under the influence. Additionally, any city-wide decriminalization law would ultimately be superseded by state and federal rules regarding psychedelics.From https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/somerville-massachusetts-psychedelics-magic-mushrooms-decriminalize-1115198/
The Somerville resolution is the latest in a growing movement to decriminalize psychedelics around the country. Last November, Oregon voted to decimalize all drugs, while Washington, D.C. voted to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms. Denver became the first U.S. city decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms in 2019, while Oakland followed soon after. Santa Cruz, California and Ann Arbor, Michigan both decriminalized psychedelic mushrooms last year as well.https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/somerville-massachusetts-psychedelics-magic-mushrooms-decriminalize-1115198/
