US – Colorado: Governor Jared Polis has signed a bill establishing a regulatory framework for the legalisation of psychedelic “natural medicines”. Senate Bill 23-290 follows the legalisation law that voters passed at last November’s ballot, allowing over-21s to receive psychedelic treatment under guidance at licensed healing centres, and home cultivation of natural psychedelics, with no limits on personal possession of psilocybin, ibogaine, mescaline (not derived from peyote), DMT and psilocyn. The bill establishes a new Division of Natural Medicine, within the Department of Revenue, to direct the regulation and licensing of four approved categories – healing centres, cultivation facilities, product manufacturers, and testing facilities. It strengthens provisions on cultivation and facilitators, sets licensing requirements, and imposes penalties for the unlicensed sale or distribution of psychedelics.

US - Colorado: Proposition 122, a ballot measure to decriminalise the possession and use and allow for regulated distribution of certain psychedelic substances, appears poised to pass as votes continue to be counted, press reports. The measure would allow for the adult (21+) possession and use of natural psychedelics, such as psilocybin, dimethyltryptamine (DMT), and ibogaine, and allow for their distribution in licensed healing centres, where participants can purchase and consume the substances under supervision. Oregon voters passed a similar measure in 2020 that allows adults access to psilocybin mushrooms.

US - Colorado: Senate Bill 22-205 has been passed by the House and now heads to the governor for final approval. The bill originally would have cracked down on intoxicating hemp-derived products by setting THC caps. However, the amended and passed version would form a task force to study intoxicating hemp products and make legislative recommendations, and would allow the Department of Public Health and Environment to prohibit such products.
