So, let’s recap the year so far. Over the course of several months, President Donald Trump and his staff have worked hard to crack down on illegal patient broking and create new resources to fight the deadly Opioid Crisis. Likewise, the little green plant called marijuana is officially being legalized in a new state each time we turn around. So, would you be surprised to hear that lawmakers are proposing to legalize another mind-altering substance that is more powerful than marijuana? Believe it or not, officials in the State of Oregon are preparing a proposition for the 2020 election ballot that focuses on the legalization of psilocybin (a.k.a. magic mushrooms). Of course, the Beaver State has already proven to be a hot spot for marijuana, so this might not be too shocking to some of you. Likewise, you might be familiar with the proposition that psychedelic drugs (like magic mushrooms) are good additives to PTSD therapy. Let’s take a closer look at the situation and find out more.
Are They for Real?
Recently, Oregon lawmakers announced their plan to introduce a ballot title for a measure that would officially legalize psilocybin (magic mushrooms) earlier this week. Ultimately, this decision is not only a major move for the United States but also pushes the Beaver State far ahead in the race to legalize these psychedelic drugs (yes, it exists). Entitled the Psilocybin Service Initiative of Oregon, this bill would fully allow magic mushrooms to be manufactured, owned, and delivered and would also permit doctors to prescribe these mind-altering fungi for medical purposes.
What Is with the Shrooms?
As we have seen with previous research, magic mushrooms are currently in the hot seat of medical studies. Remarkably, scientists have determined these little fungi (as well as other psychedelic drugs) might be useful for individuals suffering from a variety of mental problems like PTSD, nicotine addiction, anxiety, and depression and for individuals suffering from an incurable illness. Even more interesting, medical uses of psilocybin could completely cut medical care costs in half.
