California Clears Psilocybin Legalization Campaign for 2024 Ballot

California is taking a significant step towards the legalization of psilocybin, with officials recently clearing a campaign to begin signature gathering for a 2024 ballot initiative. The proposed measure aims to legalize the possession, sale, and regulated therapeutic use of psilocybin, a psychedelic compound found in certain mushrooms. This initiative, led by Decriminalize California, also seeks to establish a regulatory framework to facilitate the therapeutic use of psilocybin under professional supervision.

Campaign director Ryan Munevar emphasized the need to leverage upcoming events and college gatherings to meet the signature requirements. This initiative follows previous efforts to place similar measures on the ballot, underscoring the growing momentum for psychedelic reform in the state. If successful, the measure would create a structured environment for psilocybin therapy and potentially reduce costs associated with prior psilocybin-related convictions.
