Washington, D.C. voters have approved a ballot initiative to decriminalize a wide range of psychedelics in the nation’s capital, according to a projection from the Associated Press. Under the new law, possession and use of entheogenic plants and fungi will be among the District’s lowest law enforcement priorities. The jurisdiction is the fourth in the U.S. to enact the reform. Because Congress oversees policy in the capital city, the new D.C. psychedelics measure will go into effect after a 30-day review period during which time federal lawmakers have the opportunity to block the reform, as they once did with a voter-approved medical cannabis ballot initiative.
