In a unanimous decision, the city council of Eureka, California has approved the decriminalization of psychedelics. This makes it the fifth city in the state to do so. This means that all activities related to entheogenic plants and fungi will now be given low priority by law enforcement. Also, the activities include cultivation, distribution, and possession of entheogenic plants. It is important to note that this resolution does not apply to individuals under the age of 21.
The efforts to decriminalize psychedelics in Eureka were led by Decriminalize Nature Humboldt. This is a local advocacy group dedicated to expanding access to entheogenic plants and fungi through political and community organizing. Larry Norris, a co-founder of the group, argued that the high costs associated with therapeutic solutions necessitated the decriminalization of these substances to ensure equal access for all individuals, regardless of their income levels.
This decision in Eureka comes shortly after Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed a statewide bill seeking to decriminalize certain psychedelics. The bill cites the need for further research on their safety and efficacy. However, the city of Eureka now joins Oakland, Santa Cruz, Berkeley, San Francisco, and Arcata as jurisdictions in California that have decriminalized psychedelics.
