Calif. Bill Decriminalizing Psychedelics Heads To State Assembly
Editor: This explains why California is the way it is today, all of our state government officials are stoned.
Magic mushrooms sit in a fridge.
UPDATED 6:03 PM PT – Wednesday, June 30, 2021
California could soon become the second state in the U.S. to decriminalize psychedelic drugs like magic mushrooms. Reports have detailed a Democrat-led bill headed to the State Assembly after clearing the State Senate, that argues prohibition of these drugs is outdated and they could have beneficial effects.
The bill would allow those 21 and over to possess psilocybin, the hallucinogenic component of magic mushrooms, for personal use and social sharing. The bill also covers several other substances like DMT, LSD or acid, and MDMA which is more commonly known as ecstasy.
However, an effort to add the anesthetic ketamine to the list didn’t even find support within the party amid arguments it can be used as a date rape drug.
Another step toward ending the failed & racist War on Drugs & expanding access to mental health & addiction treatment.
Thank you, colleagues!

The Democrat behind the bill said people’s lives have been transformed by the use of psychedelics. Sen. Scott Wiener (D-Calif.) said, “the war on drugs needs to end. For 50 years, we’ve taken the approach to drug use of incarcerating as many people as possible and we have had no benefit.”
Medical experts have testified during the bill’s debates, claiming psychedelics have been tested as “an extremely promising approach to a variety of mental illnesses.”
The bill bans sharing the drugs with anyone under the age of 21 or possessing substances on school grounds. While the move would remove the criminal penalty for possessing the drugs in California, it would still be illegal under federal law.
Denver became the first city to decriminalize psilocybin in May 2019, while Oregon became the first state to decriminalize small amounts of all drugs in Nov. 2020, which took effect in Feb. this year.
State narcotics officials have warned the bill’s allowance of social sharing could bring an increase of overdoses and fatalities from contaminated drugs.

California Legislature Passes Bill Reducing Penalties for Oral, Anal Sex with Willing Children
California lawmakers passed a bill Monday that would reduce penalties for adults who have oral or anal sex with a willing minor child if the sex offender is within ten years of the age of the victim.
The bill now heads to the desk of Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).
According to SB 145, the legislation “would exempt from mandatory registration” as a sex offender “a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.”
The measure would allow a judge to decide if an adult who engages in oral or anal sex with a child must register as a sex offender if that person is within ten years of the age of the victim.
Senator Scott Wiener
#SB145 ends discrimination against #LGBTQ young people on CA’s sex offender registry. It treats LGBTQ people exactly how straight ppl are now treated.
In January 2019, the San Francisco Examiner reported on the introduction of the bill by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D), who claimed the current law, which states oral and anal sex between an adult within ten years of the age of a willing minor requires the adult to be registered as a sex offender, discriminates against LGBT individuals.
The bill would put an end to “blatant discrimination against young LGBT people engaged in consensual activity,” Wiener said:
Currently in California, judges may decide whether adults who have “penile-vaginal intercourse” with minors close to their age must register as a sex offender.
Wiener said the current law targets LGBT individuals because they do not engage in penile-vaginal intercourse.
“This is such horrific homophobia,” Wiener said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s irrational, and it ruins people’s lives.”
The Chronicle‘s report stated that, in 1975, California decriminalized oral and anal sex between consenting adults, but adults who engaged in these practices with minors were treated as sex offenders.
