Colorado was one of the first states in the country to legalize marijuana first for medical purposes, then recreational, and last November the voters approved a similar measure decriminalizing certain psychedelics for medical purposes.

Now, it appears that the next drug to be added to the list of those approved for medical treatment could very possibly be MDMA, commonly known as Ecstasy or Molly.

Colorado May Legalize MDMA Next

The drugs that Colorado decriminalized last November include psilocybin, better known as magic mushrooms, ibogaine which is used to aid in beating addictions to more dangerous drugs, mescaline which comes from peyote cacti, and dimethyltryptamine, better known as DMT.

Interestingly, many of these drugs that have been proven to be less addictive and harmful than most street drugs still remain in the FDA’s Schedule I, which is reserved for the most addictive and harmful drugs.

Colorado recently approved another bill, House Bill 22-1344 which allows for MDMA products to be prescribed to patients afflicted with PTSD. However, despite being signed by Governor Polis back in June, MDMA-assisted therapy cannot be enacted in Colorado until the drug is either removed or exempted from its Schedule I status.

In other words, the FDA must approve a medication containing MDMA used to treat PTSD before it can be prescribed in Colorado.

However, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, also known as MAPS, is diligently working to get MDMA approved for this very use by the FDA and is hopeful that it will come to fruition in 2024.
