Vancouver Is Canada’s First City to Decriminalize All Drugs
On November 25, 2020, there was an unanimous vote by Vancouver’s City Counsel to decriminalize all drugs, from Magic Mushrooms to heroin.
On November 25th, 2020, Vancouver’s City Counsel voted against the decriminalization of all drugs. This made Vancouver Canada’s first city to decriminalize all drugs. It was a unanimous vote of City Counsel to help decriminalize the possession of all small amounts of illegal substances, including Magic Mushrooms (or Psilocybin) and can range from LSD to heroin. This was followed by the actions taken place by Oregon, in which they took similar measures to decriminalize all drugs. Oregon has become the first state in the U.S to have passed this ground breaking vote.
Before this vote can become official, Canada’s Federal Government has to approve it. There has been a submitted request to approve this measure to the federal minister of health and justice. The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act must officially approve this, so that the exemption can take place, reports Vice News.
Magic Mushrooms advocates have pushed for the decriminalization of Psilocybin, as it has now been used and incorporated in medical research. By decriminalizing Psilocybin in Canada, there can be a reduced stigma and reduced harm for users. These measures are aimed to help prevent the prosecution of Magic Mushrooms, and are focused on the benefits that access to Magic Mushrooms can have on mental health.
The importance of decriminalizing Magic Mushrooms offers many people solutions for their mental health problems. Psychedelics have been a way to help others health with their mental health issues, therefore, it is important to provide Canadian’s with access to the potential of Magic Mushrooms, so that they can reduce their suffering.
