[Oregon] psilocybin; police make arrests
“Good, I want convictions. This was an illegal distribution of a controlled substance. I wanted it shut down,” Portland Mayor Wheeler said… The Portland Police Bureau said it was up to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to handle the situation but added that its drug task force was aware of the business and looking into it. OHA said it was a law-enforcement matter.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said any seizure or arrests were within local law enforcement jurisdiction. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office didn’t respond to questions about the retail store. Two senior Multnomah County deputy district attorneys were at the scene Thursday [12/8/2022] morning when police raided the shop… the office assisted police with acquiring a warrant for the investigation.
