Cambridge, Massachusetts, has become the second city in the state to decriminalize psychedelics since the beginning of the year. The city of Somerville passed similar legislation last month. Cambridge’s vote on Wednesday makes it the second-largest city on the east coast to pass such a measure. Washington D.C. passed a similar measure last November. Cambridge’s ordinance claimed that cities and states across the country, including Cambridge, “begun in recent years to recognize that criminalizing users of substances such as cannabis is neither a just or effective legal approach.”
