True, it could. Hope it does. The world needs it - not just the USA.

I hope the US legalizes them too but I think we are still a long ways off because pot is still a crime at the federal level here.The Drug War has been a disaster.Personally, i think every recreational drug should be legal,deregulated,cheap, and low tax and widely available in all parts of the US but thats just me.I dont think that will ever happen in my life but it would be great if it did.

It's weird, I occasionally sort of forget drugs are still illegal as they're so easily available to me in my area.

Be careful folks.
I know two people who dropped from mushrooms needed to be hospitalised.

You mean after they jumped from a window thinking they can fly?

I wouldn't eat a shroom if someone paid me to.

Nope, just standing in a crowd on a beach without judging anyone.

Before legalising shrooms first release the thousands of victims of the war on drugs who were arrested and imprisoned for using marijuana

It's utter madness when judges incarcerate marijuana users

Its not that but in many areas i have been there are no alcohol sales because its a crime.Like in the county next to me it was a crime to have a Coors Light even if you were adult.You generally do need a liquor license to sell it but there are many areas where alcohol is banned.Like I remember watching a newstory and you could go to jail if you were traveling through MS and you were pulled over with a 30 pack even you were over 21.

This is true.

My headlights broke when I was driving through Utah on my way to Las Vegas and I was chatting with some guy at a gas station and he asked what I had in the car.. told him 12 dozen different Canadian beers, wheels/tires, camping gear etc. He said not to tell anyone about the beer - as I was in a dry county and it's illegal to even transport beer through there!

So crazy that counties can have prohibition era laws like that. Wtf? So weird that you can buy alcohol in one part of the state or country and then just driving through another part with it is a crime.

Mushrooms are legal in Oregon for medical purposes related to mental health.
