A measure to decriminalize a wide range of psychedelics has now qualified for the November ballot in Washington, D.C. In a virtual meeting on Wednesday, The Board of Elections made the certification confirming activists had collected enough signatures to place on the ballot. The campaign needed 24,835 signatures from registered voters to qualify the measure and then after the official validation process, 25,477 of the group’s submissions were deemed valid. Now D.C. residents will be able to decide whether to approve the initiative and the measure is the latest development in an increasingly prominent psychedelics reform movement in the U.S. and beyond.
