Legal Mushrooms in Colorado?

Yes and no.

Denver, Colorado recently decriminalized magic mushrooms recently, making it the first US city to do so.

The ordinance exempts adults over 21 from criminal penalties for possessing or using psilocybin-containing mushrooms — which can be eaten or brewed into a tea — in private.

Possession of larger amounts would still be considered a misdemeanor under state law.

It's important to note, Decriminalization and legalization are not the same thing though. The Denver vote only means that those with less than 2 ounces will no longer be charged with a crime. However this does not mean you can go out and actively sell or buy psychedelic mushrooms. This is because the decriminalization of magic mushrooms in Denver does not mean they are legal to put into commerce.

"It's not a free-for-all," explained Lisa Raville with the Denver chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. "It's a recognition that this is an activity that already existed and it was manifesting itself in public" where arrests and prosecutions, while rare, seemed like an overreach.
The bill is designed to affect city enforcement only — so it wouldn't make illegal drugs like LSD or heroin any more legal than they already are under state or federal law."

The ordinance also does not change the legal status of psilocybin mushrooms and psilocybin-containing products or any medical use that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and does not affect laws concerning driving after consumption of psilocybin or any other substance.

In conclusion, yes they are no longer harassing or arresting people for simple consumption of psychedelic mushrooms... but no it's not open for commerce, sales, or purchasing. 

However it's a great push in the right direction!
