The legality of studying magic mushrooms (psilocybin) in laboratory conditions varies from country to country. And because laws can change over time, it is always essential to consult the most recent legal information and keep an eye on any kind of modifications to avoid unpleasant surprises and become aware of all the implications.
It would be very useful to note that even in countries where the study of psilocybin is legal, researchers need to follow some strict regulations and ethical guidelines. According to lab experts at Sacred Mushroom Spores, obtaining the necessary permits, licenses, and approvals from relevant regulatory bodies is, therefore, mandatory for ensuring the fact that you get the best out of your mushroom research experience.
In the United States, there are specific institutions and researchers that have obtained permission from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other regulatory bodies to study psilocybin in laboratory settings. This is typically done under strict regulations and with specific licenses granted for research purposes.
For instance, in Oregon, magic mushrooms are fully decriminalized, whereas in California, they are only decriminalized in a few cities. Among the other parts of the US where magic mushrooms are partially decriminalized, we could mention Washington, Michigan, Colorado, and Massachusetts. Still, maintain the regulations offered in the region you live.
