Voters narrowly made Denver the first U.S. city to decriminalize psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in “magic mushrooms.”
Decriminalization led by a slim 51%, according to preliminary figures on Tuesday’s election released by Denver’s Election Division. As many as 1,300 votes still remain to be counted, but that figure was not enough to swing the vote the other way, division spokesman Alton Dillard said.
Final election results will be released on May 16, he said.
Meanwhile in Temecula, if you don't have your license, or paperwork yet the Law will come and shut you down if you run a marijuana shop. DETAILS
Temecula is free of marijuana dispensaries, thanks to a series of raids by a Riverside County law enforcement unit established to crack down on illegal cannabis activity, it was announced Friday, April 26.
Beginning in February, the Cannabis Regulation Task Force began conducting operations to rid Temecula of storefront marijuana outlets, serving nearly a dozen search warrants that resulted in cease-and-desist orders, putting the unlicensed dispensaries out of business, according to Riverside County District Attorney’s Office spokesman John Hall.
“The aim of the task force is not to shut down legally operating facilities, but rather to ensure fair business practices and keep criminal activity out of the legal cannabis industry and out of our communities,” Hall said.
