Growing support for legalizing "magic mushrooms"
City Inside/Out: Legalizing Psychedelics?

The effort to legalize “magic mushrooms” as a treatment option for the mental health care crisis is growing in Washington. Oregon voters legalized psilocybin, the active ingredient in hallucinogenic mushrooms, for use in medical settings, but a similar effort failed in the Washington state legislature recently. As advocates prepare to put the issue before voters this fall, we examine the push to legalize this psychedelic drug for its therapeutic benefits.
