A bill that would legalize “magic” mushrooms for the treatment of mental disorders was introduced last week by the New Jersey state Senate.

Authored by the state Senate President Nicholas Scutari, the bill, according to its language, would allow residents over the age of 21 to “possess, store, use, ingest, inhale, process, transport, deliver without consideration, or distribute without consideration, four grams or less of psilocybin,” the psychedelic compound in “magic” mushrooms.

Of-age adults would be legally able to grow, cultivate, or process plants or fungi capable of producing psilocybin for personal use as long as it’s kept on private property and out of the hands of minors.

Scutari believes psilocybin can be beneficial to mental health and can help treat diseases such as depression and anxiety.

“This bill is a recognition of evolving science related to psilocybin and its medical uses related to mental health, and if science can provide relief in any fashion with this natural substance under a controlled environment then we should encourage this science,” Scutari told NJ.com.

The bill would additionally expunge past criminal offenses related to psychedelic mushrooms.
