Award Winning Filmmaker Brings Psilocybin Documentary To Denver Prior To Decriminalization Vote
On May 1st Golden Teacher Films and Decriminalize Denver will present the world premiere of DOSED, a documentary about one of the most important mental health topics in the world. DOSED follows the journey of a suicidal woman who turns to underground healers to try and overcome her depression, anxiety, and opioid addiction with illegal psychedelic medicine like psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and iboga.

The premiere is very timely because the beginning of May will mark a historic event for Denver as the city votes to decriminalize psilocybin, making it the first city in North America to take this issue to the polls. DOSED will educate the public about psilocybin and encourage voter turnout and ballot mail-ins.
DOSED features psychedelic medicine researchers and experts including Dr. Gabor Maté (addiction and trauma expert), Dr. Rosalind Watts (clinical psychologist – Imperial College London) and Rick Doblin, PhD (founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies – M.A.P.S.).
Kevin Mathews (Campaign Director of Decriminalize Denver) will moderate a panel Q&A discussion following the May 1st premiere featuring filmmakers Tyler Chandler and Nicholas Meyers; as well as Trevor Millar, chair of the board of directors for M.A.P.S. Canada.
The Denver world premiere of DOSED will be followed by an international theatrical tour including film festival appearances in San Francisco and Melbourne.
