CBS SF Bay Area - 

California State Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) has announced a plan to introduce legislation “to decriminalize psychedelic drugs” when the legislature reconvenes in early 2021.

Wiener — the State Senator for District 11, which compromises San Francisco, Daly City, Colma, Broadmoor, and parts of South San Francisco — announced the plan with a thread of several tweets posted on Tuesday.

“These drugs have been shown to have medicinal value treating depression, PTSD & other conditions,” he said in his first tweet on the subject. “We need to stop criminalizing drug use & addiction.”
