~ Minneapolis ~
With the recent successes in Denver and Oakland to decriminalize entheogenic plants/fungi, efforts in other cities are popping up all over the country, it's time for Minneapolis to join the call and do what we can to help.
Decriminalize Nature Minneapolis is working to promote the wellness of individuals through the decriminalization of entheogenic plants and fungi. Removing criminal penalties for these healing substances will help improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of our community.
Who We Are:
Our grassroots community organization is focused on the responsible use of entheogenic plants and fungi. We intend to inform Minneapolis residents and city officials about the healing potential of entheogens through educational campaigns and political engagement for the purpose of encouraging a sensible, evidence-based, drug policy.
Here’s our plan:
Recruit volunteers from our ~700 PSM members, 1000+ social media followers, and ~230 Psychedelic Neuroscience members. Form committees dealing with political engagement, public relations, law enforcement engagement, medical community engagement, and fundraising.
Utilize informational handouts and events to gather community support.
Deliver testimonials, educational material, and formal resolutions to city officials for recommendation.
