America’s first legal shroom… center will charge $3,500 for ‘high dose’ trips
Reggie Harris, founder of Oakland Hyphae, a Black-owned psychedelic education and cultural organization, said half a gram of shrooms costs less than $1 to produce. “What are we paying for? Are we paying for the 1-2 hours for somebody to sit with you on a microdose? No insurance is paying for this, it’s a straight out of pocket cost and it’s price gouging,” he said.
“We really want to not only make this a sustainable practice because it was very expensive to even do this thing, to open it up, but we want to serve people. We want to have fun serving people,” said Cathy Jonas. The services won’t be covered by health insurance plans. Eugene Psychedelic Integrative Center will also offer sliding scale pricing, discounted by its “Pay it Forward” donation fund. Eugene Psychedelic Integrative Center did not respond to VICE News’ request for comment.
