You could call it a "heated debate" but these days, it seems like it has fizzled out a little: legalization of marijuana in Idaho. We've see the wave of legalization happen all around us-- Washington and Oregon, perhaps our closest neighbors, have legalized for recreational sale and use. In regards to medicinal use, a total of 37 out of our 50 states have legalized.

In Idaho, it seems folks have gotten used to a commute to Ontario. It just isn't realistic to think dispensaries will ever exist in Idaho, at this time.

There's one drug that is making a come-up, no pun intended, nationwide. Could Idaho take a look at this one?

Here's a look at what some real local Idahoan's say justify legalizing the weed: 

4 Practical Reasons The People of Boise Want Weed Legalized

We asked the people of Boise why they want weed legalized in the state of Idaho... and they bring up some valid points!

So if weed isn't legalized...what about "shrooms"?

While it is currently legalized in far fewer states than marijuana at this time, Psilocybin, the psychoactive compound found in "magic mushrooms" is gaining steam in the legal system. Colorado most recently legalized "magic mushrooms" and Oregon, our neighbor to the West did so a couple of years ago, with rules in place that it must be integrated in a therapeutic setting.

Massive studies are being done at major institutions, like Johns Hopkins University, the research the benefits of Psilocybin for mental health related issues, like PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Thus far, research in its infancy has proven to be positive.





Many states are beginning to see little harm in usage of Psilocybin and studies are showing that it isn't a "drug" that gets people addicted.  There's also no odor, which is a common complaint about marijuana in cities and states where it is legalized.

Do "shrooms" have more medicinal promise than marijuana? Some are saying yes-- and similar compounds are already available in Idaho, such as Ketamine, in the venue of mental health assistance.

One of the most unique attributes of this "drug" is that it grows naturally in Idaho's forests--but if picked, becomes a crime.
