ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / April 14, 2021 / Minerco, Inc. "The Magic Mushroom Company" (OTC PINK:MINE) today announced that it has retained a lobbying firm to play an expanded role in the Company's lobbying efforts. The firm will be joining forces with Minerco's government relations staff to decriminalize psilocybin in Detroit, Michigan and surrounding areas. Ann Arbor, Michigan recently joined Denver, Colorado; Oakland, California, Santa Cruz, California; and Washington, D.C. as cities across the nation that have decriminalized naturally occurring psychedelics sometimes referred to as entheogenic plants and fungi. Oregon voters passed a ballot measure in November that will create a program for medicinal use of psilocybin.
"This is a pivotal time for our movement and for the psilocybin industry," said Julius Jenge, Chief Executive Officer of Minerco, Inc. "The success of marijuana decriminalization and legalization efforts in the United States has provided a blueprint for proponents of other drugs that are currently regulated similarly in United States such as psilocybin. We are optimistic that voters across the nation will realize the medicinal benefits of psilocybin just as they did with cannabis and will join us in supporting nationwide reforms in the laws prohibiting the manufacturing and distribution of psilocybin and comparable drugs."
Recent studies of the effects of psilocybin suggest it can be used to treat a wide range of ailments from insomnia to depression. The Ann Arbor decriminalization resolution additionally cited benefits of using natural psychedelic compounds to break addiction to other drugs, such as opiates, heroin and methamphetamines.
The drugs specifically targeted by prior decriminalization efforts include: psilocybin, which is found in various strains of mushrooms; mescaline, found in San Pedro and peyote cacti; ibogaine, which comes from the iboga plant, an African shrub; and dimethyltryptamine, commonly referred to as DMT, from ayahuasca tea that is made with various South American plants.
