Drug legalisation

Why Denver decriminalised magic mushrooms

The city voted on it in a referendum, and is the first place in the US to do so
The US city of Denver held a public vote on whether to decriminalise the use of magic mushrooms. The decision passed with a slim majority of 50.6% - and it's now the first city in the US where you can use the drug without being punished. Cindy Sovine is part of Decriminalize Denver group who campaigned for the change.
