Virginia Legislators Want Legal Psilocybin

As the regulation of psychedelics has slowly shifted across the states, Virginia legislators are doing their part to join in on this movement. Del. Dawn Adams (D-Richmond), a nurse practitioner, and state Sen. Ghazala Hashmi (D-Chesterfield) filed almost identical measures last year to end the felony possession penalties for psilocybin mostly to protect practitioners! However the bill was killed for reasons such as not being able to control whether citizens would drive under the influence.
