Magic mushrooms may soon become legal in Oregon, where even powerful politicians seem high on the idea, according to a report.
The states attorney general green-lit language allowing the bill to hit the ballots in 2020, assuming advocates get enough signatures, according to Oregonlive.com
If it passes, the initiative would decriminalize hallucinogenic mushrooms and allow them to be manufactured with a license. Oregon would become the first US state to legalize the drug.
The bill will need 140,000 signatures in order to appear on the ballots in the 2020 general election, the paper reported.
Nationwide, possession of psychedelic mushrooms and their active compound, psilocybin is a felony. But advocates say the trippy treat can help boost spirituality, fight depression and even help terminally ill patients cope with death.
The intent of the 2020 Psilocybin Service Initiative of Oregon is to advance a breakthrough therapeutic model currently being perfected in research settings at top universities around the world, Tom and Sheri Eckert, who are leading the petition, wrote on the campaigns website.
Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum declined to comment to the paper.

Liberals want the populace doped up and off kilter. Makes liberalism and leftism make sense.
It’s destroyed our country.
In before “demonic satanism” church ladies...
You sound like a liberal.
Along with the legalization of pot, a docile population is a controllable one, hence the soft takeover by our enemies foreign and domestic
I know from experience.
I just happen to keep a few pictures of our boxer dogs in a book right beside me in the bookcase to the left.
Its title is, "The Psychedelic Gospels" --- The Secret History of Hallucinogens in Christianity.
A very informative book.
It starts with pot.
But they still hate cigarettes!
Mushrooms have been spotted in many early Christian iconographic paintings and stained glass windows...
If you knew more about mushrooms/psilocybin you would save your words here.
When LSD/psilocybin is used by intelligent people it can be very beneficial to your life and point of view.
But admittedly, its use needs to be used by intelligent people or monitored by the same.
Cary Grant, for instance, used LSD under supervision for years when he was in California. He learned quite a bit about things that were bothering him from his early life.
By holding fast to the idea that "reality" is what you want it to be and say it is, Liberals/postmodernists have to exist in a state of mind that feverishly denies the ever persistent voice of True Reality.
Denying True Reality requires a huge amount of self-medication.
LOL ..... a docile population is more controllable LSD hardly makes an individual "docile".
Is the initiative in Oregon for the end purpose of medicinal mushrooms, or to allow for recreational use of the same? While I am not familiar with Cary Grant’s situation, the key words you used were “under supervision”.
Oh yes! There are many of those photos in the book mentioned above.
"The Psychedelic Gospels" is written by Jerry B. Brown, Ph.D. and Julie M. Brown, M.A.. It is very well written ..... a fascinating piece of scholarly work.
I know more about it than you ever will.
You’re spewing 60’s hippie propaganda.
Liberal left orthodoxy.
I know from experience. -----
Bad trip, eh?
Ehrlich on "Silicon Valley" had a bad trip once. He ate a few mushrooms and was heading out to the desert to think things over ...... and he looked up in his car and saw a never-ending traffic jam in front of him! LOL
“Bad idea. I know from experience.”
Same, from before high school (I had a weird childhood).
Let me ask you if I may. How many times have you used LSD?
Just round it off (1 or 5 or 20 or 50 or keep going.)
Just what do you think you sound like?
In my opinion, playing with brain chemistry is not something to venture in lightly. We only have one.
