Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 11, 2020) – The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) (FSE: YG3) subsidiary Flourish Mushroom Labs Inc. applauds the recent momentum toward decriminalization of psilocybin across the U.S., including Washington D.C, California, Colorado, Michigan, Vermont and Oregon.

Denver and two California cities, Santa Cruz and Oakland, have already decriminalized psychedelics. While the legislation does not remove penalties related to the sale or cultivation of mushrooms in Santa Cruz, it does mean the city’s law enforcement is unlikely to investigate or arrest individuals for possession.

In November, Decriminalize California teamed up with the Beckley Foundation to replicate the success of decriminalization in Oakland throughout the state of California. Decriminalize California has 180 days to collect at least 625,000 valid signatures as of January 2020 in order to get the issue on the November 2020 Ballot. 


In Washington D.C. residents may vote in November 2020 to decriminalize certain psychedelic plants and fungi making enforcing drug laws related to psychedelics a low priority for law enforcement in the state. Proponents must gather 25,000 signatures by July 1 in order to get this on the November ballot.

In Michigan, Decriminalize Nature Ann Arbor is holding a fundraiser to support a lobbying campaign to decriminalize psychedelic plants in the city. The goal of the campaign is to make entheogenic plants, including psilocybin mushrooms, peyote, ayahuasca, mescaline, ibogaine and other plants, the lowest prosecutorial priority. 

Vermont lawmakers filed a bill in January of this year that would decriminalize certain psychedelic substances such as psilocybin, ayahuasca, peyote and kratom.

The Oregon Psilocybin Services Act would allow adults to visit licensed medical facilities to have the psychedelic administered under professional supervision. In order for the initiative to qualify for the November 2020 ballot, 112,020 signatures must be collected by July 2.

Yield Growth and Flourish CEO Penny White :

There is tremendous momentum across the United States and globally with greater awareness of the potential of psychedelics and their potential therapeutic benefits. The Flourish Mushroom Labs team is working closely with leading organizations throughout the industry to support the forward movement of these efforts.

Last week, COMPASS Pathways announced its acquisition of U.S. Patent No 10,591,175, which covers methods of treating drug-resistant depression with a psilocybin formulation. In 2018, COMPASS received a breakthrough therapy designation for psilocybin therapy for treatment-resistant depression.
