This program will examine the rapid changes in psychedelic law and policy in the five years since Denver voters passed Ordinance 301.  In May 2019, Denver voters approved Initiated Ordinance 301, a ballot initiative that decriminalized the personal use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms. The following month, in response to community activism, the Oakland City Council passed a resolution that effectively decriminalized the personal use and possession of various naturally occurring psychedelic substances. Since then, there has been an explosion in psychedelic law reform around the United States, including decriminalization, legalization of state-licensed psilocybin-assisted therapy, public funding of research, and litigation challenges to the legal status of psilocybin. In 2024, psychedelic substances are being moved through FDA clinical trials by start-up pharmaceutical companies, First Amendment-protected sacraments with centuries or millennia of indigenous use, and commodities in widespread illegal consumer markets.
