As of 8:30 p.m., the bill to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms was failing — with more than 54% of voters against it.

 

Next time.

 

Thoughts on this? How could it have been handled better?

I think since there are no states yet decrimming, the first time will always fail, but after people see it/hear about it during consecutive elections, especially since less and less negative propaganda seems to be in media about certain drugs, people will get desensitized to, especially since it is the sfest drug there fucking is..

 

I listened to a podcast with the couple who wrote the petition from Oregon, IDK how that's doing, but they seemed to be going about it in a better way to get support. They were far more clinical, also decrimming personal possetion, and making it available in clinics. They were pretty critical of the Denver thing, IDK all the details about either, but it sounded like the Oregon thing was more likely to pass. I want to read up on it now.

based on some comments on a facebook page of local mushroom forager/enthusiasts, some people are shellshocked by cannabis legalization, blaming a lot of local ills on it, and fearing that decriminalization is a backdoor for legalization. Some people just feel they need to tell others what they can and can't do.

We could discuss several valid points. But Bottom line is there's no money in it for the government.

Oh ya! it's funny when a new member asks for pointers on where to forage! You'd think they were asking for PINs on their ATMs or something!

Does anyone know how this vote went?

Can't find any news about it.

 

Edit:  Never mind.  I found it.

The vote went to the No side by only 8%.

Lets educate and do it again!

This was a citywide initiative, not statewide. So, CSP would (and will) still enforce state law, even inside Denver city limits. Such initiatives really lack teeth. If one were serious about getting this to pass in a Colorado city, the ideal target would be Boulder. I could not imagine this initiative failing there!

Surprise! The uncounted mail in votes came mainly from enthusiasts who pushed the initiative to a win.
