Denver activists, police officials and other experts have agreed upon a set of recommendations to expand the city’s historic vote to decriminalize psilocybin in 2019—including by deprioritizing criminal enforcement against additional activities like gifting and communal use of the fungi.
The Denver Psilocybin Mushroom Policy Review Panel, which was established under the voter-approved initiative, unanimously approved those and other recommendations as part of a report on the impacts of decriminalization that members will be presenting to a City Council committee next month.
At a high level, the psilocybin decriminalization experiment has clearly demonstrated that “the sky didn’t fall” in Denver by making possession and cultivation among the city’s lowest enforcement priorities, Kevin Matthews, president of the city mushroom panel, told Marijuana Moment.
