According to the Times of Isreael, Rabbi Ben Gorelick, the founder of Sacred Tribe, a multifaith community that integrates psilocybin use and ideas rooted in Jewish tradition, will no longer face prosecution after Coloradans voted last month to legalize psilocybin.

Denver’s district attorney’s office announced last week that it was dropping charges against Gorelick, who had been charged in February with possessing a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or distribute it.

This move was made in light of the voters’ decision to pass Proposition 122, which makes growing and sharing psilocybin and other related substances legal for adults over 21 in Colorado.
