    ST. LOUIS, Missouri (KMOV) — Missouri lawmakers are toying with legalizing psychedelic drugs.

They held a public hearing on House Bill 2850. The proposal would allow people with certain medical conditions to use plant or fungus-based psychedelics.

If passed, this would apply to people with dealing with PTSD, depression, or terminal illness. Oregon is the only state to have legalized some psychedelics for therapeutic use, but several cities have decriminalized some of them.
