…efforts may herald… era for psychedelics

[US]… the fundamental issues of medicine, therapy, adult use, and schedule 1 drugs will all have to be contended with in some way… this is a huge boon for many supporters of criminal justice reform advocates and harm reduction efforts.

Oregon was prohibited by the governing agency from requiring a diagnosis for access to treatment… fall[s] under the category of “adult use” because, to his knowledge, neither is “diagnosis-based,” meaning that someone may not have to have a formal diagnosis… Oregon’s 109 explicitly states that people seeking psilocybin treatments are not “patients” but “clients,” a deliberate distinction and that facilitators can’t diagnose or treat mental health disorders. In 2020, Oregon passed 110, which ostensibly decriminalized the personal use of [some] drugs. In practice, however, that simply means these offenses are reduced to a “Class E” felony, which allows police to fine drug users. While fewer substances are included in Colorado’s proposition, it completely decriminalizes a wide swath of drugs derived from plants… text clearly states that the possession, growth, transportation, and sharing of plants containing DMT, psilocybin, ibogaine… are not a violation of state law and thus can’t be punished by any means, including fines, penalties, or arrest.
