Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Supports SB 519
SB 519 (Wiener) Controlled Substances: Decriminalization of Certain Hallucinogenic Substances. (SUPPORT)
SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA (March 4, 2021) – The San Francisco Bay Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce supports SB 519 (Wiener). The Hispanic Chamber advocates for the socio-economic prosperity of the 9-county, 101-city region known as the San Francisco Bay Area, now home to 7 million Californians. In alignment with our organization’s mission and values to serve the community, we believe SB 519 advances cognitive liberty and implements a comprehensive, statewide scheme authorizing and regulating the cultivation, processing and distribution of entheogens and the chemical compounds contained therein for personal, spiritual, religious, dietary, therapeutic, and medical use, and we believe the matter to be of state-wide socio-economic concern.
