    Iowa

    Despite the huge therapeutic potential, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is not part of standard medical care yet. Self-medicating with psychedelics can produce undesired results, but despite that, more and more people feel disappointed with the efficacy of the current treatments and they turn to risky, but potentially more beneficial psychedelic-assisted therapy. The goal of this guide is harm reduction for people, who decided to self-medicate, we don’t encourage possession or consumption of illicit substances even for therapeutic endeavours.

Psychedelics – assisted psychotherapy in Iowa

Legal status of psychedelics in Iowa

Drugs are divided into five “schedules” in Iowa. These are used to assess the level of risk, as well as the severity of penalties for having such schedules near schools or other public places.

LSD, Mescaline, Psilocybin, ibogaine, DMT and Peyote are schedule I drugs in Iowa.

In Iowa, the criminal penalties for CDS possession depend on whether the violation is a first or subsequent conviction.

First conviction

A first conviction is a serious misdemeanor. Penalties include a fine of between $315 and $1,875, up to one year in jail, or both.

Second conviction

A second conviction is an aggravated misdemeanor. Penalties include a fine of between $625 and $6,250 and one year in jail; or no fine and up to two years in prison.

Third and subsequent convictions

A third or subsequent conviction is a class D felony. Penalties include a fine of between $750 and $7,500, up to five years in prison, or both.

Marijuana possession is treated differently than possession of other controlled substances.

The safest way to obtain psychedelics in Iowa

Magic mushroom spores are currently legal in Iowa. Psilocybin mushroom spores don’t really contain any psilocybin. As a result, people of all but three states in the United States are permitted to purchase, sell, and possess psilocybin spores. Spores are commonly collected and experimented on by researchers and mushroom enthusiasts in general, and they can be purchased from a variety of online vendors. As is often the case, growing psilocybin spores into mature mushrooms will result in serious criminal charges, including the manufacture of a controlled drug.

The future is uncertain, but there are a few reasons to be optimistic about Iowa’s drug laws surrounding psilocybin. A Republican senator, for example, proposed an amendment to an ongoing budget bill that would potentially decriminalize psilocybin in the state.

A panel of two Republicans and one Democrat failed to advance the legislation, but it nevertheless was an important development for drug policy in Iowa and the nation. It positions psychedelic drug reform as a legitimate public policy issue, even in a conservative state. Despite the bill’s failure, it could pave the way for potential efforts to relax the state’s ban on magic mushrooms.

Psychedelic mushrooms appear to be surprisingly familiar to Iowans. Every one of the more than 20 online comments was in favor of the bill. Just legislators and state government lobbyists spoke out against the bill at the Statehouse.
