The City Council of Seattle has signaled that it is willing to legalize or decriminalize hallucenogenic drugs in the interests of alternative methods of counseling, therapy, substance abuse treatment, and personal development. From the article: “We recognize that decriminalization, and ideally legalization, is the way to create a safer environment for everyone. Especially with psychedelics, there’s so much potential for the treatment of behavioral health issues….. Using all the resources at our disposal in safe ways to create wellness for people, that’s overdose prevention.”
