From the leadership team at at Decriminalize Nature DC:
If passed, Initiative 81 would designate entheogenic plants and fungi (iboga, ayahuasca, psilocybin, and mescaline-containing cacti) as the lowest law enforcement priority for DC’s Metropolitan Police Department. This change would help ensure that DC residents benefiting from these plant medicines - which can help treat depression, anxiety and addiction - are not subject to arrest or prosecution. These changes would help end another part of the destructive war on drugs while protecting DC residents using natural medicines to heal. Initiative 81 does not change penalties or legalize the sale of entheogens.
The DC DSC and the Ward 6 Dems support this ballot initiative. Vote YES.
