Weaponized Degeneracy 2.0: Oakland Decriminalizes Psychedelic Mushrooms, Peyote, DMT

A California city long recognized nationwide as a hotbed of violent crime, gangs, poverty and narcotics has legalized the possession and use of psychedelic mushrooms, peyote and DMT. Rather than drain its cesspool of cultural degeneracy, the leaders of the City of Oakland have decided to get neck deep by systematically decriminalizing crime.

Oakland is the second city in the United States to decriminalize psychedelic ‘shrooms. Denver, Colorado, was the first. But Oakland took it a step further.

Nerdist: While Denver decriminalized the use and possession of mushrooms containing the compound psilocybin, over in Oakland it’s all “entheogenic plants.” And that includes the mushrooms and other fungi containing psychoactive substances.

Another second for Oakland: It’s  the second most dangerous city in California, but it was ranked No. 1 in 2014. It’s also the 14th most dangerous place to live in the United States. It’s a small wonder that Oakland high school graduation rates are among the lowest in the state for a unified district, at just 61 percent.

Oakland is considered part of northern California’s Bay Area. This area includes some of the most expensive cities in the country to live, such as San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Most middle-income folks who work in San Francisco or Silicon Valley cannot afford to live there. They commute to work from suburbs that are 30 minutes to two hours away. But San Francisco’s low-income service-sector workers tend to settle in the regional cesspool known as Oakland, where gang violence, drugs and theft are cultural norms.

Shining example of Oakland’s economic and cultural plague is the “Ghost Ship” warehouse fire.

Was Oakland’s Ghost Ship Fire A Cult Sacrifice?

Oakland residents often commute into San Francisco using the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) metro rail system. Some rail stations have become like drug-den flophouses for area addicts.

Occasionally, local news media bothers to cover stories involving rampant robberies and rape.

A BART official, who was asked about beefing up security, said that just like you can’t have a cop on every block, they can’t put an officer on every train.

And this is just the rail system. Check out the city library.

Here’s an excellent documentary explaining the black and Latino gang wars in Oakland, which is also known as “Baby Iraq.” Gosh, what a great place for a ‘shroom trip, man!

Despite black and Mexican turf wars, Oakland’s city council — the same council that legalized ‘shrooms — chose to make Oakland a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants in January 2018. Such political policies limit cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who’s a Jewish lawyer, told the press she will do whatever is necessary to stop deportations, even if it means going to jail herself.

Meanwhile, ‘shrooms and other entheogenic substances are still illegal in the state and nation. They’re considered Schedule 1 drugs under the federal Controlled Substances Act, which categorizes drugs that have “potential for abuse and no medical value.” However, some groups are pushing for change.

California, which legalized marijuana last year, tried but failed get a ballot initiative for magic mushroom decriminalization in 2018. Now, “activist groups” are taking up the cause for 2020. And in Washington, D.C., socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), who has already aligned herself with federal marijuana reform, is pushing for legislation that decriminalizes ‘shrooms, MDMA and other psychedelic drugs to “make it easier” for scientists to study their medical efficacy.

Uh huh.


Torchy Takeaway: I suspect what we’re witnessing here, folks, is circa 1960s-style “weaponized degeneracy” version 2.0. Others have covered well the topic of cultural debasement as strategy. Therefore, allow me to direct you to Russ Winter’s insightful “Flower Power” post, as well as Jan Irvin and Joe Atwill’s exploration of the truth behind Timothy Leary and LSD Movement.


3 Comments on Weaponized Degeneracy 2.0: Oakland Decriminalizes Psychedelic Mushrooms, Peyote, DMT

  1. Hey Torchy,

    I’m still trying to get past this quote that tripped me up; “by systematically decriminalizing crime”

    So the decriminalization of a past deemed crime is sacrilegious???

    These people referred to in the article are bi-products not antagonists .

    • I agreed. The Federal government never had any power granted under the constitution to prohibit anything, although that power does reside to the states or even locally provided it’s not bared by the state’s constitution. Case in point, the volstead act, which could not be passed nor enforced without the passage of a constitutional amendment. The CSA is plain usurpation by the Feds and it’s enforcement alongside the law is repugnant to the constitution and thus must be ignored, I.e. Nullified by our own actions and opposed by everyone. The crime, the degenerate behaviors is a by product of prohibition as we have seen with alcohol prohibition. It has created a second class citizenship and as such I believe that this and the combination with deindustrialization caused by Globalist free trade and communist indoctrination via a failed public education system has caused this. Endemic poverty, denial of rights and a law enforcement stance that is viewed as racial oppression with the help of commie agitators as opposed to a harm reduction stance (with focus on health and voluntary rehabilitation with access to various social programs even if the person hasn’t committed to rehab) has caused this cesspool. The gang turf war was bound to happen as both groups are vying for the same resources but the influx of illegals not willing to assimilate into American society is exaggerating the problem greatly.

      Arresting the sanctuary city mayors and city councils, deportation of the illegal aliens (it can be done, deputize people and offer bounties on illegal immigrants along with denying them welfare goodies) eliminating prohibition and leaving it as a state’s right issue along with revitalization of the economy would go a long way in cleaning this up. Morality should never be legislated unless the act violates life, liberty and property. It is the perview of the family first, then the church. We must also bring God back into the public square. Like Ron Paul said, if you don’t like drugs, don’t do drugs. That decision is up to the individual, not the government.

      That is my opinion and I maybe wrong. All I know is that I am a sinner and must repent for it. We all need Jesus or we will destroy ourselves because we are of the flesh and its nature is sin. Therefore we need something beyond flesh, a higher power.

  2. Hey Bullion, I’m not sure what you mean by this: “So the decriminalization of a past deemed crime is sacrilegious???”

    Bourbon, you wrote: “Morality should never be legislated unless the act violates life, liberty and property.” Right. This is exactly the issue.

    I hear what you’re both saying. In many places in the world, this model works. In a good culture, absolute liberty is a beautiful thing. But in a criminal culture, the criminals take all the liberties while everyone else lives in fear and pays for the mistakes of others.

    Oakland is an incredibly dangerous place. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, take a walk some evening through the ‘hood, or ride BART for that matter.

    I didn’t fully appreciate the cultural issues of California until I moved there and witnessed it for myself. In talking with local sheriffs, I’ve learned that about 90% of the crime they deal with every day is drug-related — but they’re not talking about drugs as the crime.

    Rather, it’s the horrible, awful shit people do when they’re on drugs that’s the problem. Domestic violence, battery, vagrancy, theft, DUIs, child abuse, child molestation, public intoxication, etc. is the problem. Local sheriffs said they don’t go after people simply for drugs because there’s no political support from the prosecutor’s office for this, and jails are just too damn crowded.

    So don’t confuse my criticism of the legalization of psychedelic drugs in Oakland with some anti-liberty stance. In Denver, we’ll see how it goes. Maybe it’ll be fine there. But Oakland is a world apart.
