Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) recently signed into law a measure creating a regulatory structure for the legal use of psychedelics, reported Marijuana Moment.
The bill, SB23-290 sets up regulations for the voter-approved Prop. 122 decriminalizing natural psychedelics and legalizing their use in licensed healing centers. See key points here.
The new law notes that the potential of psychedelics to treat mental health conditions and spiritual growth should be “appropriately balanced” with the potential health and safety risks to consumers and the potential cultural harms to indigenous communities.
