Less than six years ago, Colorado citizens—tired of the war on drugs and wise to the near-limitless benefits of cannabis—made US history by voting to legalize recreational marijuana.

As the Denver Channel reports:
Gathering at the steps of the Denver City and County building on Wednesday, the group — chanting at times, “free the spores!” — met with city leaders about their push to decriminalize psilocybin, also known as magic mushrooms.
