Following in the footsteps of Oregon, California is potentially opening up the market to psychedelics.
Legislation filed on Wednesday by Senator Scott Wiener looks to “end the failed War on Drugs approach to addressing psychedelics while building on the science and research in the psychedelic field to create the potential for a therapeutic framework that could help people struggling from the effects of depression, anxiety, PTSD and other health conditions.”
It would also free up those with prior criminal records due to possession or use of psychedelics.
In particular psilocybin, LSD, DMT, MDMA, ketamine, mescaline, and ibogaine would all be under the umbrella of this bill.
It’s yet to be determined if this bill will pass the senate, but there are also plans to get psilocybin legalization on the ballot in 2022, so it seems just a matter of time for this state to see some form of legal psychedelics pop up at a storefront near my fellow Californians.
