Oakland second city in U.S. to allow ‘magic mushrooms’

Using psilocybin mushrooms, also known as “magic mushrooms,” as well as ayahuasca and peyote will now be allowed in Oakland, the second city in the country to give “shrooms” the OK.

The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a resolution barring police from enforcing laws banning the use of “entheogenic” — or psychoactive — plants, which include psilocybin mushrooms, ayahuasca, peyote and others. Though Oakland police rarely come across the substances, Councilman Noel Gallo brought forward the resolution in an effort to “empower communities to share knowledge and continue building an above-ground infrastructure around entheogens,” he said in the proposal.

Hey, I didn’t know about that! Neato!

+1 to stay in Oakland, @susan! :mushroom: :eye: :fireworks:
