Decriminalize Nature is Ending Prohibition of Plants & Fungi

If something grows out of the ground, let it grow.

Dozens of localities around the country are following Oakland’s example, forming their own Decriminalize Nature chapters to end prohibition around entheogenic plants and fungi.

In October of 2018, Plazola read Michael Pollan’s How to Change Your Mind and had his first psychedelic experience in 37 years: a “mushroom journey,” as he calls it, that changed everything he thought was right about the work he had done in California to normalize cannabis.

“As I began to emerge from the lobbying world, I asked, ‘where did we go wrong with cannabis?’” Plazola tells DoubleBlind. “That’s when I started asking, ‘Why did we cap possession levels to begin with?’ It was fear. ‘Why did we offer all these complex regulatory frameworks?’ It was fear.”

Together with Larry Norris, co-founder of the non-profit Entheogenic Research Integration and Education (ERIE), they created Decriminalize Nature with a vision for decriminalization that’s as simple as it gets: If something grows out of the ground, let it grow.

“When people go on the record before their elected officials to say ‘I broke the law and it helped heal me’ that’s a different level of investment and commitment in this process.”

A Unique Opportunity

#voteLibertarian

 

Liberty-minded voters who are registered unaffiliated have a unique opportunity. They’ll have three choices of Presidential Preference Primaries.

We urge them to vote in the primary of the party they align with politically. We are the only alternative party that allows them in: the Libertarian Party.

Otherwise, they can go back to the two establishment parties and pick from either the “least bad” or the “most” libertarian candidate in the bunch. That is a losing strategy.

Unaffiliated voters and registered members of the Libertarian Party should heed our call to vote for liberty by voting in the Libertarian Primary.

We don’t believe the establishment parties have earned your support. Their hyper-partisan shenanigans in the past year alone have eroded public trust on a huge scale.

We want 40,000 registered Libertarians in North Carolina to take the time and effort to vote in our presidential primary. Your tax dollars are paying for this election. Continue reading
