Charges Against the DEA17 Dismissed!

Today in Arlington County, Virginia, the trespassing charges filed against the 17 Right to Try Psilocybin advocates were dismissed! They were arrested on May 9, 2022, after staging a 4 hour direct action at the DEA HQ. With the charges being dismissed they face no community service or no fines– just an expungable record of their arrest. This lack of prosecution goes to show how the DEA does not want any unwanted attention to it’s obstruction to access to psilocybin for therapeutic use with dying patients!
