SB242 has passed out of the Senate with a 16-4 vote in our favor! The bill now moves to the Assesmbly Health and Human Services Committee for a vote (date TBD). Unfortunately, over the course of the last month, the bill has undergone significant changes and we are working hard to ensure that it contains a path for decriminalization. Read the full text of SB242 here.

This is a huge step toward bringing healing to our communities and a pivotal moment for criminal justice reform in our state. Nevada Coalition for Psychedelic Medicines is raising funds to lobby in support of this bill. You can help by donating, spreading the word, and joining the coalition. Thank you for your support--every donation makes a difference! 


Sierra Psychedelic Society is a Reno-based organization focused on building community, providing education, and promoting risk management.

“In many, many ways, all of us are indebted to Indigenous peoples and their traditions and their knowledge when we are interested in these medicines.”


Our Mission


Psychedelics are to the study of the mind what the microscope is to biology and the telescope is to astronomy.

         -Dr. Stanislov Grof


Do the work to keep the lines open. Do the work to reach out to communities. Don't rely on just one group to do it, everyone has a role to play in the shaping of this movement.
