Detroit decriminalizes psychedelic mushrooms: What it means

Psilocybin mushrooms --

Detroit residents voted to decriminalize entheogenic plants, including psychedelic mushrooms, during Tuesday’s election. But that doesn’t mean you can start growing your own shrooms or selling them commercially.

It does, however, mean that the city will not prioritize arrests for the use and possession of entheogenic plants.

“Shall the voters of the City of Detroit adopt an ordinance to the 2019 Detroit City Code that would decriminalize to the fullest extent permitted under Michigan law the personal possession and therapeutic use of Entheogenic Plants by adults and make the personal possession and therapeutic use of Entheogenic Plants by adults the city’s lowest law-enforcement priority,” Proposal E reads.

Over 61 percent of voters supported the measure.

State Sen. Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor, has long been a supporter of decriminalizing entheogens and recently introduced a bill in the state Senate with Adam Hollier, D-Detroit, that proposed statewide decriminalization.
