The Oakland City Council has voted in favor of decriminalizing natural hallucinogenics, including “magic mushrooms.”
The item will go before the full City Council on June 4.
The resolution introduced by Councilman Noel Gallo applies only to psychedelics derived from plants or fungi.
The resolution would reportedly instruct police to stop investigating and prosecuting people using the drugs.
The measure is scheduled for a public hearing before City Council’s public safety committee Tuesday night.
Earlier this month, Denver, Colorado became the first city to approve a city ordinance decriminalizing hallucinogenic mushrooms.
