Ferndale is decriminalizing magic mushrooms and other psychedelics

by Team Inc.


On Monday night, the Ferndale City Council unanimously passed a resolution to decriminalize entheogenic plants and fungi such as psilocybin mushrooms, Ayahuasca and Dimethyltryptamine (aka DMT).

This does not mean that these psychedelics are completely legal. However, research into psychedelics and other substances will become easier. Penalties for planting, cultivating, purchasing, transporting, distributing, engaging in practices with, or possessing entheogenic plants or plant compounds—listed on Federal Schedule 1—will receive the lowest law enforcement priority.

Psychedelics for a better life

“The use of entheogenic plants has been shown – through scientific and clinical studies – to be beneficial to the health and well-being of individuals and communities,” the resolution reads.
Billy Horton of Decriminalize Nature Ferndale thanked the council for their support and said the group would continue to educate the community about safe use.

“I just want to continue to emphasize the importance of psychedelic and entheogenic plants and make sure that research and science support it.” Ferndale is the fourth city in Michigan to have psychedelic plants and fungi decriminalizes after Detroit, Hazel Park and Ann Arbor.
