Ann Arbor Legalized Mushrooms

The push for the election proposal comes after Ann Arbor decriminalized the use and possession of magic mushrooms and psychedelics in September 2020 and made it the city`s lowest law enforcement priority to investigate and arrest anyone for entheogenic plants and fungi. ANN ARBOR, MI – When a grassroots group of Activists in Ann Arbor began influencing the City Council to decriminalize magic mushrooms and other psychedelic plants and mushrooms, most council members were unwilling to take up the cause. Commissioners for the city of Grand Rapids voted in October to show “support” for the decriminalization of psychedelic mushrooms, but have yet to pass proposals. The city joins a handful of others across the country. Ann Arbor is a college town that prides itself on a more relaxed approach to the fight against drugs. In the 1970s, he was among the first to decriminalize marijuana. Now it does the same with mushrooms and other entheogenic plants. Currently, the city of Detroit will not prioritize arrests for the use and possession of entheogenic plants. However, the personal possession and therapeutic use of magic mushrooms by adults remains illegal. Decriminalization means that such acts become the city`s lowest law enforcement priority and criminal charges are not laid against those in possession. In the state, the Ann Arbor City Council voted to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms in October 2020, making it the fourth city in the United States and the first in Michigan to do so. Washtenaw County Attorney General Eli Savit has previously stated that he does not intend to “pursue the use or possession of entheogenic plants in any other part of the county.” Our office will continue to oversee Senate Bill 631 and other legislative and policy changes related to magic mushrooms and advise our clients accordingly.

While legalization and retail are a long way off, it looks like magic mushrooms will soon make the same leap as marijuana over the past decade. Entheogenic plants include psilocybin mushrooms, African ibogaine, South American ayahuasca, and peyote and mescaline from some cacti. Detroit residents voted to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, also known as “magic mushrooms,” in the last election in November, becoming the second Michigan city to do so. Ann Arbor decriminalized magic mushrooms in 2020. Grand Rapids is also well on its way to passing a policy change regarding magic mushrooms. In 2019, Denver became the first U.S. city to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms. The city was then followed by Oakland and Santa Cruz in California, which decriminalized all entheogenic plants defined by the voting initiative as plant and fungal species containing ibogaine, dimethyltryptamine, mescaline, psilocybin or psilocyn. More and more cities are following the example of Michigan and these other states. ANN ARBOR, Mich.

FOX 2 — A week after the Ann Arbor City Council voted to decriminalize psychedelics like magic mushrooms, some medical professionals want users not to be deceived into thinking there`s no danger.

Oregon went further and legalized magic mushrooms at this time last year. Although the city and county of Washtenaw have recently taken steps to ease restrictions on psilocybin mushrooms, police said they are investigating whether the services offered by Arbor Shrooms, which advertise on colorful flyers throughout the city, are legal. Washtenaw County Attorney General Eli Savit has also taken steps to decriminalize mushrooms. He announced in January that his office would not charge anyone for the use, possession or distribution of entheogenic plants, including magic mushrooms, on a small scale. The policy focuses on further wider dissemination. Arbor Shrooms, according to her testimony, was founded by an unnamed woman from Ann Arbor.

The woman is a mother of two and a survivor of domestic violence who began growing mushrooms to treat her own post-traumatic stress disorder, according to the statement. There are still skeptics about mushrooms, like Thana Millar. Last year, Denver became the first U.S. city to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms. The city was then followed by Oakland and Santa Cruz in California, which decriminalized all entheogenic plants. Ann Arbor City Council members discuss a resolution to decriminalize entheogenic plants and fungi, including “magic mushrooms,” during a meeting broadcast by the community television network on September 21, 2020. Detroit`s proposal comes as many states and cities have decriminalized or legalized the medical or recreational use of marijuana or cannabis and are now starting to do the same with entheogenic plants or mushrooms. Denver was the first city to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms in 2019. Since then, Oregon, Rhode Island, New Jersey, the District of Columbia and eight other U.S. cities have decriminalized entheogenic plants and fungi in one way or another.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The city of Ann Arbor has decriminalized psychedelic plants and mushrooms, including magic mushrooms, and police will no longer make it a law enforcement center. Detroit has joined the growing number of cities and states that have decriminalized entheogenic plants and fungi, colloquially better known as “magic mushrooms” and psychedelics. To support this movement, a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine compared psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms, and escitalopram, a drug sold under the name Lexapro, as a treatment for major depression. The findings suggest that mushrooms may be more effective than major depressive treatment drugs such as Lexapro. Studies like the one published in the New England Journal are one of the main reasons why a growing number of communities are considering decriminalizing entheogenic plants, including magic mushrooms. “From what I can say, it seems like it`s a company that grows and sells, so I would call it mushroom making, which, as I read in the council resolution, is outside the scope of the council when that resolution was drafted,” the Ann Arbor police lt.
