Many are wondering, did Massachusetts legalize magic mushrooms? The answer is that the State is getting much closer and the voters in Massachusetts will soon decide to legalize magic mushrooms. Earlier this week enough signatures were gathered and turned in to allow for the ballot question in 2024. If approved, people struggling with anxiety, depression and PTSD will be able to try treatments using mushrooms containing psilocybin.
The SOS office said it will take weeks to verify the signatures. Statewide ballot questions had to be filed by Wednesday with at least 74,000 signatures from registered voters. Supporters of the movement claim to have submitted more than 95,000 signatures for verification and are looking forward to having the voters answer the question, did Massachusetts legalize magic mushrooms.
WHERE IS PSILOCYBIN LEGAL?
(Did Massachusetts Legalize Magic Mushrooms – Not Yet Only A few Cities Have Decriminalized Them)
Currently, the use, sale and possession of psilocybin in the United States is illegal under Federal Law; however, the movement to decriminalize psilocybin began in 2019 and Denver, Colorado was the fist city to decriminalize it. The cities of Oakland and Santa Cruz California, Washington D.C., Somerville, Cambridge and Northampton Massachusetts, Seattle Washington and Detroit Michigan have all followed Denver’s lead.
LEGAL PSILOCYBIN ALTERNATIVES – A NEW NOVEL MOLECULE RCD2
Recently, there has been a flood of new dietary supplements and edibles hitting the market; but, are the legal psilocybin alternatives really legal? What is it these companies are marketing? Well those questions remain unanswered and some of the products are simply marketed as legal magic mushrooms, but they really contain amanita mushroom extracts or Delta8 and Delta9 THC from hemp to give the consumer an effect. Flag Digital has learned a lab based in Texas and California has developed a new novel molecule called RCD2. This new molecule is a serotonin agonist that bonds to the 5-HT2A receptors the same as psilocin and can be consumed in products like gummies or chocolates as well as applied topically to specific areas on the neck. RCD2 could be the first legal psilocybin alternative to hit the market and it appears to be a much safer option than consuming mushrooms.
