Proposition 122: Natural Medicine Health Act
Colorado’s Proposition 122, Natural Medicine Act seeks to legalize psilocybin and psilocin for those over 21. Psilocybin and psilocin are hallucinogenic compounds present in psychedelic mushrooms. If Coloradan passes the Natural Medicine Act, it will create a legal access program allowing adults to consume the substances in state-regulated settings, supervised by trained facilitators for therapeutic purposes. Organizers believe Prop 122 is essential for providing Coloradans with effective treatment options, as the state ranks low for mental health care. Although Coloradans would not be able to buy mushrooms over the counter, this legislation can pave the way for regulators to decide whether or not to create similar programs for administering DMT, ibogaine, and mescaline starting as soon as 2026. Recent research has found that these compounds all have the potential to effectively treat mental health disorders such as PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
