Psilocybin Decriminalization Inches Forward At State Level
HONOLULU – With Oregon leading the way in the decriminalization of drugs, other states are following suit. A state bill to legalize psilocybin treatment was introduced in the Hawaii Senate last Friday. If approved, SB 738 mandates Hawaii’s Department of Health to set up treatment centers for the therapeutic administration of psilocybin and psilocin, Marijuana Moment reported.
State Rep. Lee and State Sen. Les Ihara Jr. introduced a set of resolutions, last year, aimed at forming a Medicinal Psilocybin Working Group. The group’s goal was to study the medicinal applications of psilocybin in order to ensure its availability for adult patients.
In Florida, Rep. Michael Grieco introduced a bill to permit the use of psilocybin for mental health treatment to the House on Thursday as reported by Marijuana Moment.
If approved, the bill establishes a legal framework for a psilocybin program for Florida. The bill aims to require the state’s Department of Health to regulate access to psilocybin at state-licensed facilities, as well as to create an advisory board to assist in the law’s regulation.
The bill includes decriminalization of all entheogenic plants and fungi, including psilocybin, DMT and mescaline when found in natural sources.
Lawmakers in Connecticut are also moving forward on psilocybin. A Connecticut House Bill was introduced this week, which establishes a task force to study the health benefits of the drug.
