John Litchfield and Lauren Carboni Discuss 2023 Trends for Recreational Marijuana and Therapeutic Psychedelics

16 December 2022 SHRM News

Foley & Lardner LLP Partner John Litchfield and Associate Lauren Carboni are quoted in the SHRM article, “2023 Trends: Legalization of Recreational Marijuana and Therapeutic Psychedelics,” discussing the rise of legalized adult recreational marijuana use and therapeutic psychedelics across the country.

Litchfield and Carboni noted that in the U.S., the use of certain psychedelics in a facilitated, supervised setting is lawful in both Colorado and Oregon, and a growing number of cities have decriminalized the personal adult use of certain entheogens, known as psychedelic plants and fungi.

“However, decriminalization does not necessarily mean legalization,” Litchfield and Carboni cautioned. “Rather, the simple possession of certain entheogens for personal use will have the lowest enforcement priorities.”
