The Legality and Public Perception of Psychedelics

At present, magic mushrooms are available for recreational use in Colorado.

Other notable figures who shared their thoughts at the event included NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry, an advocate for research on the potential benefits of psychedelics for veterans with PTSD.
