Mushroom Laws By State

Psilocybin Mushrooms are a hallucinogenic drug that is ingested by people to alter their perceptions, such as all of a person’s senses, thinking, emotions, and sense of time. Although it is naturally occurring, there are also synthetic variants of psilocybin. The hallucinogenic drug has essentially been totally banned in the United States since 1968, and it is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance by the Federal Government. 

However, thanks to new research that has been conducted regarding the positive psychological effects of psilocybin, certain key states have begun to decriminalize the substance. In the vast majority of states, however, the substance is illegal. States could, if they wanted to, supersede the federal law regarding psilocybin and decriminalize the substance for use in their state, either recreationally or medicinally. 

Although psilocybin is decriminalized in certain states, it technically isn’t fully legal anywhere in the United States.

Decriminalization is not the same as making a particular act legal; it means that the penalties surrounding a particular illegal course of action have been reduced, will not be enforced, and that that action is no longer considered to be a crime. In contrast, legalization refers to the removal of criminal penalties that are afforded by a particular action that is not currently legal.
