This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition Decriminalise possession of Psliocybin containing mushrooms.
Psilocybin mushrooms also known as “magic Mushrooms” are currently a Class A drug, with heroin and cocaine.
Recent studies show that psilocybin mushrooms medicinal properties far outweigh any negative effects in society. Users often use psilocybin In threshold doses (microdose) to help with PTSD.
Imperial College London is doing research into the benefits and negative effects of psilocybin and other psychedelic compounds.
Some research shows that psilocybin can be used to treat Depression, PTSD, addiction, cluster headaches among others.
Use of mushrooms at threshold dose (microdose) is on the increase and criminalising a lot of people who use this as a medicine not recreationally.
Please change the law to allow possession for personal use to those over 21(18) years of age.
