Denver "allows" psychedelic mushrooms + Mushrooms reduce cognitive decline risk

Denver just voted to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms

INTRO: Denver will become the first US city to effectively decriminalize mushrooms containing the psychedelic psilocybin, also known as “magic mushrooms.” Initiative 301 makes the personal use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms among people 21 and older the lowest possible law enforcement priority in Denver. It also prohibits the city from spending resources to pursue criminal penalties related to the use or possession of psilocybin mushrooms among people 21 and older.

And the initiative sets up “the psilocybin mushroom policy review panel to assess and report on the effects of the ordinance.” The initiative doesn’t legalize magic mushrooms; they remain illegal under state and federal law. And it doesn’t decriminalize or deprioritize enforcement against the distribution and sales of psilocybin mushrooms — all of that could still be pursued by police. (MORE)

They’re magic! Eating mushrooms could slash risk of cognitive decline by 50%

EXCERPT: Older people who eat more than two portions of mushrooms a week could cut their odds of having mild cognitive impairment (MCI) by 50%, according to a recent six-year study of Chinese men and women over age 60 that was published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. [...] This mushroom discovery is “surprising and encouraging,” researcher Lei Feng [...] said in a statement. “It seems that a commonly available single ingredient could have a dramatic effect on cognitive decline.”

A portion of mushrooms was defined as roughly three-fourths of a cup of cooked mushrooms. After controlling for a variety of other factors, the researchers found that those who ate one or two portions of mushrooms slashed their risk by 43%, those who consumed even more than that by 52%. The researchers studied six types of mushrooms including golden, oyster, shiitake and white button mushrooms, as well as dried and canned mushrooms, though they added it was likely that other types of mushrooms could have cognitive benefits too.
