The legality of psilocybin mushrooms, a common psychedelic type, varies worldwide. The 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances considers psilocin and psilocybin Schedule I drugs. Apart from their high abuse potential, these drugs lack recognized medical applications. However, numerous cultures have used psychedelics over the years for religious and medicinal purposes.
UN treaties may not control psilocybin mushrooms, but the substances are still regulated by the Canadian Drugs and Substance Act, the US Psychotropic Substances Act, and 1971’S UK Misuse of Drugs Act. When it comes to medical marijuana, only 34 American states consider it legal. States like Massachusetts and Alaska even allow recreational use.
