OR ! Just if you are curious, because it is packed with great information :)

Decriminalize Nature Oakland

Reaching out to you, family and friends, community members, and local leaders.

@thankyouplantmedicine began last year as a way to get stories of personal transformations out to the world.



A more collective way to end the stigmas placed upon these entheogens.


There are multiple ways of participating, you can ask someone for permission to share their story or you can share your own. It can be anonymous if desired or public, because it isn't wrong to share your experiences, especially in light of helping others.

So write our page, write your local Decrim chapters, or make a post yourself and tag us!

Together we create a better tomorrow, together we regain our right to nature.

"...the story of depression went something like this: Due to a complex interplay of factors, including stress and genetics and other imperfectly understood things, the brain lacks enough monoamine neurotransmitters – particularly serotonin."





"A new story of depression goes like this: at some point in a patient’s life, the brain’s natural ability to adapt begins to atrophy. This loss of neuroplasticity may happen in circuits that regulate mood, and once they are impaired, the brain ends up “stuck” in a depressive disorder. Restoring neuroplasticity could reopen the highway to health."

Wonderful article about our habitual tendencies and how we can change the way our brains treat these habits using psychedelic substances...and some non-psychoactive; all better known as psychoplastogens.

This is an exciting time, the recent solar eclipse has brought some structure to the initiative and it looks like there is a new Michigan Decrim podcast on the way! Keep your eyes out, I will share it here the first chance I get :)

Happy Holidays all, safe travels and as always - thank you for your everlasting support as we work for a better, more connected future.

Even members of our military take to these trips of the mind on days off; like taking L*D and longboarding. It is far more normal to consume psychedelics than so many people believe.

“Results of the meta-analysis indicated that participants in all four studies showed large reductions in anxiety and depression after receiving psilocybin dosages. Furthermore, the effects of psilocybin were significant even at the six-month follow-up. For the three double-blind studies comparing placebo and psilocybin conditions, the effects of psilocybin on anxiety and depression were also found.

...

“Nonetheless,” the researchers conclude, “the current meta-analysis suggests psilocybin in combination with behavioral support may provide a safe and effective treatment option for reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. This is an area for additional careful, scientific study.” “

Terence McKenna, Alan Watts – Surrender Your Ego to the Universe (Video)

**REPOST**

“The hour is late; the clock is ticking; we will be judged very harshly if we fumble the ball. We are the inheritors of millions and millions of years of successfully lived lives and successful adaptations to changing conditions in the natural world. Now the challenge passes to us, the living, that the yet-to-be-born may have a place to put their feet and a sky to walk under; and that's what the psychedelic experience is about, is caring for, empowering, and building a future that honours the past, honours the planet and honours the power of the human imagination. There is nothing as powerful, as capable of transforming itself and the planet, as the human imagination.”

educateinspirechange.org What I am involves what you are, the problem is you see… We haven’t been taught to feel that way. The myths underlying our culture and underlying our common sense have not taught us to feel identical with the universe, but only parts of it, only in it, only confronting it–aliens. And we are, I...

[05/28/20]   As an initiative to get back into the groove, I am collecting emails for those truly interested in helping out and trying to find the right path for this movement to flow on. All support is deeply appreciated and support means the world to this movement so if you don’t have time in the future to be involved that’s okay-we need numbers and people educating and advocating just as much as we need people sitting down and organizing.

So if you’d like to get emails involving updates, send it my way and maybe make a comment of how you may be able to help or would like to...

As always, with love and well-being, Decriminalize Nature Marquette

Magic mushroom compound psilocybin found safe for consumption in largest ever controlled study

For those who don’t click the articles or actually read them; here’s what I found to be the most important

“The largest controlled study of psilocybin – the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms – has found the compound safe for human consumption, bringing researchers one step closer to developing a psilocybin-based treatment for depression.

In June, The Independent reported that participants in the first trial comparing psilocybin to antidepressants at the world’s first psychedelic research centre, at Imperial College London, described a cathartic emotional “release” and “reconnection” during psilocybin therapy.

As the study’s lead Dr Robin Carhart-Harris pointed out, this is the polar opposite of antidepressants, which patients often complain leave their emotions “blunted”. “

Put the focus to participants saying the experience lead to a release and reconnection compared to typical antidepressants leaving emotions blunted. We can’t heal depression or aid it in anyway if we hide the emotion; we must come face to face with the troubles deep within to find positive growth and forward movement in healing.

The worlds changing, and we should be open to these changes and create a society where natural plant medicines are destigmatized and the use of them as medicines and spiritual sacraments is not looked down on.

“It all depends on changing laws. America's coming debate over psychedelics will be fierce; fears of public health and moral decline will swirl around the national conversation.
