Denver votes to become first U.S. city to decriminalize ‘magic mushrooms’

Similar measures are likely to follow. Voters decide this week whether Denver will become the first USA city to decriminalize the use of psilocybin, the psychedelic substance in " magic mushrooms ." . Magic mushrooms are used in spiritual practices for decades due to their powerful effect on perceptions and spiritual encounters. Those same effects have appealed to recreational users dating back to the 1960s counterculture movement.
