Denver Voters Decriminalize "Magic Mushrooms"

In case you haven't heard, very soon possession of "magic mushrooms" will no longer be a criminal offense in the city of Denver, Colorado.

Voters approved a measure to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms earlier this week. The vote was extremely close - 50.56% yes to 49.44% no.

The numbers are still technically "unofficial" until May 16th.

Earlier this year the Denver Psilocybin Decriminalization Initiative gathered enough signatures for the question to be added to a local election ballot.

The measure allows for the possession of psilocybin mushrooms by adults 21 and older in Denver without being arrested.

Denver is the first municipal government in the United States to pass such a measure.
