Psychedelic decriminalization continues in Michigan

Ferndale, Michigan’s city council has voted to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms and other natural psychedelics, making it the fourth municipality in the state to begin psychedelic decriminalization after Detroit, Hazel Park, and Ann Arbor.

On February 27, the Ferndale City Council passed a resolution to decriminalize entheogenic plants and fungi, including psilocybin mushrooms, ayahuasca and dimethyltryptamine (DMT).

In a two-page resolution, the city council accepted findings that human beings have used natural psychedelics as herbal medicines for thousands of years. It also acknowledges that research has shown psychedelics to be beneficial to one’s health and well-being.

“The use of Entheogenic Plants, which can catalyze profound experiences of personal and spiritual growth, have been shown by scientific and clinical studies and traditional practices to be beneficial to the health and well-being of individuals and communities,” it reads.
