Oregon voters said yes to [decriminalizing] psilocybin… what’s next?

Unlike Oregon’s Measure 110, which decriminalized possession of small amounts of [psilocybin], Measure 109 did not decriminalize psilocybin. Instead, it calls for a regulatory framework… [Additionally, the authors of the John’s Hopkins-Lancet Commission on Public Health and International Drug Policy call for non-violent minor drug offenses including use, possession, and petty sale, to be decriminalized].

[And finally], November 2020, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a randomized clinical trial of 24 adults diagnosed with major depressive disorder. The study found that after four weeks with two psilocybin sessions 71% of participants showed a “clinically significant response” and 54% met the definition for remission of depression.
