Colorado is in the midst of a mental health emergency. 

With the nation's highest rate of substance abuse among adults, and the third-highest rate of adults considering suicide¹, it's clear that Colorado needs a radically effective and alternative solution to address this crisis before it gets any worse, especially in the wake of lockdowns, business closures, and further isolation related to COVID-19. 

Major depression, treatment-resistant depression, addiction, and anxiety are not simply the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain or body, they are symptoms related to unresolved and/or ignored trauma². In many cases these symptoms are a coping mechanism used to find comfort from pain in the short term in order to avoid the stress and uncertainty related to confronting and finding closure with deeper wounds.

While every body is different, and every person has different needs, issues, and trauma related to their struggles, there is no reason or justification for people to suffer when we have solutions – especially solutions that can be so much more effective than conventional treatment – literally growing beneath our feet. 

Psilocybin mushrooms are one of those solutions.

Clinical research over the past 20 years has demonstrated time and time again that psilocybin, when used responsibly, has statistically-significant results in addressing depression³, anxiety, and addiction in the long term after a single treatment and, in most cases, much more effectively than traditional medical interventions.

Additionally, since May 2019, there are no reported significant public health or safety issues related to decriminalizing psilocybin in Denver, and more cities and states have followed Denver's lead to decriminalize psilocybin since then. 

We need to not only fully decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms in Colorado so that folks can have control over their personal health and treatment protocol, but also create a regulated medical model that is equitable and accessible to everyone whether they are sitting privately with an experienced guide or in a clinic with a licensed professional.

There is no time to waste – Colorado lawmakers return to their session in mid-February and we need to let them know that we want access to psilocybin so that we can not only find healing for our own struggles, but create a new culture that prioritizes the health and radiance of our community.

Support this petition today to send a message to your elected officials that you want control over your health and mental wellbeing with psilocybin.
