So I was reading wikipedia and it claims that psilocybin mushrooms have been decriminalized in Oakland? Can someone explain how that works? They are still a controlled substance as far as the fed is concerned, I assume? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psilocyb

drugs 

@pagrus so: still illegal, but the city is not going to spend money trying to bust people for it or enforce fines/jail time that would normally apply to possession.

re: federal level, it's still illegal but again unless you're doing stuff like crossing state lines, etc, trying to traffick it, you're probably in the clear...

drugs 

@hafnia In practical terms, I assume that means they are easier to find than say in SF

drugs 

@pagrus it's probably about sixes but if you're looking for shrooms I'd try Santa Cruz over anywhere else.

drugs 

@hafnia Yeah I mean if it were as easy to get there I would probably do that. It's a pita compared to hopping on BART tho

drugs 

@pagrus yeah, I get that. you're likely to have an easier time in Santa Cruz bc cultivation is legal there I think. but tbh you can probably find someone dealing in SF. a friend of mine was microdosing with LSD for a while and the guy he bought from also sold shrooms. he's a tech dude in SF, so, you know. don't think it ever occurred to him to go to Oakland. :blobcat:

drugs 

@hafnia Yeah I know I could find them here, I guess maybe I was hoping there would be a dispensary or something if it's decriminalized. Sounds like not though, that's probably a little further out

drugs 

@pagrus ah, yeah, no, that's not how decriminalization works, alas.

OR legalized 'em for therapeutic use last year, tho, so in a bit you'll be able to make an appointment at a clinic somewhere in the state and trip while supervised. lol.

drugs 

@pagrus not to be That Guy but they do have legitimate therapeutic use and it's something I've thought about pursuing for both the migraines and the PTSD. idk!

basically it'll be nice to have the option.

@hafnia mushrooms did SO much for my recovery. I had multiple breakthroughs and also quit smoking. Good stuff.

@Cyannin :blobcattoot:

I want to try them at some point, so yeah.
