I watched a DC white woman being interviewed on the news about this. I mention her race because she seemed like a Karen. She said something like "I voted no on this, because even though I'm not against it, we have more important issues to be worrying about".

WTF does that mean?
DC can only handle one issue a year?
You can vote yes on this and the DC government won't come to a halt. Moron.

Given what we hear out of D.C. every day, I thought they were already.

People will all find some excuse to vote No.    Basically on most ballot initiatives the vote is made for entirely selfish reasons.  Do I or someone I know and care about need/want this?  Zero sum thinking.  Giving people This freedom will somehow reduce my own freedom in some way I can't articulate.

"Decriminalized" doesn't mean "legal," subs.

"Initiative 81, or the Entheogenic Plant and Fungus Policy Act of 2020, would make the investigation and arrest for adult cultivation and use of psychedelic plants one of the lowest law enforcement priorities for the district's police department."

Unless they're black, of course.

On an interesting related note I was out hiking last weekend and found some Red cap mushrooms growing wild in a park. I was with the wife who doesn't really approve of drug use so I didn't get to collect them.

Saw Washington D.C. in the headline then pictures of little shriveled mushrooms.
So glad the article wasn't about THAT.

If you vote on one thing, pretty soon they're asking you to vote on other things.

Neat, but we're still waiting on pot legalization to be implemented due to GOP intransigence and sabotage.

The city's citizens voted on it, and overwhelmingly passed it. Then Andy Harris, a GOP rep from my state, blocked it with a budget rider - and continued to block it. The Dems took over the House in 2019, and stripped it out - only to have the Senate put it back in for the final budget bill.

If you want your government to have any chance of actually representing the will of the people you can't vote GOP.

Oregon's is just to allow "them" to do research in a medical environment to use them as a therapeutic resource.  They're not selling it for medical or recreational purposes.
Anyway, it's regarding psilocybin, so tar it with the same brush, I guess.

Redcaps are pretty freaking obvious, plus I used an app to double check my identification. They are toxic, but there are no recorded incidence of lethality in humans. Further unlike some species where there is a lookalike that is toxic or lethal there isn't one for redcaps. And like I said the wife's a bit of a party pooper when it comes to such things so I left them alone.

Just kidding.

But I bet reading the TOS of a mushroom identification app would be bloody hilarious.

When they get old enough, they should vote against the GOP too.
