Seattle Votes to Decriminalize Psilocybin

Seattle becomes largest city in the United States to decriminalize Psilocybin.

On October 4, Seattle’s city council voted unanimously to relax its rules against naturally occurring drugs, joining a handful of other cities that have decriminalized psilocybin and similar substances since Denver kicked off a wave of such changes three years ago.

The city is the largest in the recent string of decriminalization initiatives taking place in cities across the United States, including Washington DC, Oakland, Denver, and the state of Oregon. Seattle’s legislation includes several different psychedelics, including psilocybin mushrooms.

What it means for law enforcement.

The city’s police will make it among their lowest priorities to arrest or prosecute anyone engaging in activities related to “entheogens,” or drugs like psilocybin and ayahuasca that are often used for spiritual or religious purposes, according to a meeting attended by telephone. Psilocybin, a mind-altering substance also known as magic mushrooms or shrooms, is classified by the federal government as a Schedule I drug, the most-restrictive category.
