This is a massive step toward ending the War on Drugs! California, one of America’s largest and most populated states, has introduced a bill to decriminalize psychedelic dugs. These drugs include psilocybin, LSD, MDMA, ketamine, DMT, mescaline and ibogaine. However, peyote is not on the list.

The bill would decriminalize possession for both medicinal and recreational use. Interestingly, peyote is not on this list, and for good reason. There is already a shortage of the plant among indigenous practitioners, and the plant is sacred to the native community. It was requested that the bill not decriminalize peyote, or mescaline sourced from peyote.

PTSD and psychedelic therapy

PTSD is an awful mental condition which is prevalent among army veterans, especially those who have been on active tours and seen the horrors of war first hand. Often this condition results in years, often decades, of therapy to process and move past what they have seen.

Psychedelics, under the right supervision and guidance, have been reported to offer what feels like 10 years of therapy in one single session. Ayahuasca ceremonies, psilocybin hero doses and other practices like this are becoming more widespread, and talked about. As time passes, particularly since the legalization of cannabis in Canada and many states, the social stigma of psychedelics fades. We move further and further from the War on Drugs, and the influence is losing hold. It’s clear the dark negative stereotypes over personal choice of use is disappearing. The result is that a group of US army veterans are supporting this bill to the US Congress with the goal of legally using these avenues as treatment.

Actually legal?

The greatest part is that although the bill totes itself as “decriminalization,” the official analysis of the proposal states different. In reality, it would “make lawful” the personal possession and social sharing of these substances. Whaaaaaat!

Concurrently, a group of California activists recently announced plans of an initiative to legalize the use and retail sale of psilocybin on the 2022 state ballot. The group, Decriminalize California, said that it would first work to convince lawmakers to pursue reform. If the legislature fails, then they want to take the issue directly to the people.

  1. This is very good news. As someone who has mental illness that I believe to be centered around some type of genetically induced ADHD, using psychedelics in micro-doses has been my best solution over the Typical ADHD and ADD treatment of stimulant and amphetamine type medications. Although he struggle has been getting acceptance from piers and mentors on my choice to use Psychedelics as such doses instead of taking pills that have extreme side effects with mood swings and weight loss. I’m grateful to hear the western world is finnaly giving freedom of choice a try when it comes to state of mind. Thank you California.
