Denver, Colorado decriminalizes hallucinogenic mushrooms


Colorado Magic Shrooms Legalization

Denver, Colorado, already known for its progressive drug-related laws, has become the first city in the U.S. to decriminalize hallucinogenic mushrooms. The new ordinance, which was passed on May 16, 2019, decriminalizes the personal use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms – known by many as magic mushrooms – or simply “shrooms.”

What are shrooms?

Shrooms are a fungus that has been used for medicinal and religious purposes in dozens of cultures throughout history, going back 9000 years. Today, the drug is used primarily for recreational purposes.  

Grown in different parts of Europe, Africa, South America, Mexico, and the United States, shrooms are most famous for their psychedelic properties, thanks to two potent substances: psilocybin and psilocin. These chemicals are what trigger the well-known “shroom trip.” When you eat shrooms, the chemicals stimulate the serotonin receptors in the brain, creating vivid hallucinations. 

What are the side effects of shrooms? Are they addictive?

The main effect of shrooms is the feeling of euphoria and sensory distortion that’s common to hallucinogenic drugs like LSD. While the psilocybin in shrooms is not an addictive substance, it can trigger disturbing hallucinations, anxiety, and panic. Also, individuals with a family history of schizophrenia or early onset mental illness do face an increased risk of adverse psychiatric reaction to psilocybin.

So, while we can’t come out and endorse shrooms for everyone, we can say that shrooms can provide a wild trip for many, but like any drug – always proceed with caution.

Can shrooms, like weed, help with medical issues?

Yes. A growing body of medical research shows that the psilocybin in shrooms is successful in treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression. In fact, in a 2017 study published in the journal Nature, it was reported that 47% of patients who had treatment-resistant depression showed positive responses at five weeks after receiving psilocybin treatments. 

In 2018, researchers at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins University called for removing psilocybin from the list of Schedule 1 drugs, which are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, or drugs that have no recognized medical uses.

Are shrooms legal in Spain?

The legal status of shrooms in Spain is a fuzzy area. While technically illegal, the personal use of shrooms has been decriminalized. So, just like weed, it’s best to be discreet when using it – and do not get caught either transporting or buying/selling it on the streets. With that in mind, if you do decide to indulge in shrooms, have a safe and happy trip!
