”Our legislation decriminalizing possession of psychedelics #SB519 just passed the Senate Health Committee — its 2nd committee — & now heads to the Senate Appropriations Committee. We need to end the War on Drugs & we need to allow people to access psychedelics” said Weiner in a statement.

The law requires California’s Public Health Department to establish a working group “to study and make recommendations regarding possible regulatory systems that California could adopt to promote safe and equitable access to certain substances in permitted legal contexts,” according to the bill text. The working groups findings and recommendations would be due on or before January 1, 2024.
