A change in a mushroom petition… amongst psilocybin [mushroom] advocates

Initiative PDX-01 petition aims to amend the Portland City Charter by decriminalizing a handful of substances that advocates describe as “psychedelic plant materials,”  including psilocybin-containing mushrooms. The petition also pushes back against the Petition 34 premise of allowing psilocybin only in licensed therapeutic centers, arguing that “making these medicines available only through government-licensed facilities or healthcare centers in a country in which healthcare is a for-profit industry will create barriers to access for the most vulnerable and in-need populations.”

The [Oregon Psilocybin Society] psilocybin initiative petition [IP-12] that was gathering signatures to make it to the 2020 Oregon ballot was withdrawn by its chief petitioners on Nov. 6, 2019 according to the state’s Elections Division. The new petition [IP-34] alters several key factors of the last version, most notably that the new petition no longer requests the decriminalization of psilocybin. That means psilocybin can only be doled out in therapy settings in centers that are licensed to distribute psilocybin as a therapeutic treatment.
