Psychedelic legislation has been introduced in Nevada. SB242 would decriminalize a small amount of psilocybin mushrooms for personal use, and effectively allow for research of psilocybin and MDMA (decriminalizing the use of these medicines in the context of approved studies). 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!
On March 23, 2023, SB242 was presented before the Health and Human Services Committee in Carson City and we are still waiting for the bill to leave the committee.

“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.”
