Magic Mushroom Decriminalisation

In 2005 the Labour Government completely banned the possession of the common native free-growing fungus Psilocybe Semilanceata, as well as other strands of non-native psychedelic mushroom. For a government to ban an organism that is not harmful but which yields positive experience is an example of Orwellian state control. Moreover, magic mushrooms are even scheduled as Class A which is simply grossly irrational.

Section 21 of the Drugs Act 2005 therefore should be repealed in order to restore civil liberties and to bring trust back into the political system.
