Legal use [of psilocybin cubensis] mushrooms begins in Oregon

…the long-awaited moment of legalized psychedelics… finally arrived. Officials… said the biggest tensions were over affordability, since psilocybin will not be covered by insurance… a single session is likely to cost hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.

On Jan. 1 [2023], Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the adult use of psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychedelic that has shown significant promise for treating severe depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and end-of-life anxiety among the terminally ill, among other mental health conditions… Oregon’s experiment has not been without hiccups. The ballot measure’s passage created a backlash in rural, more conservative parts of the state. A subsequent ballot measure in November [2022] resulted in 25 of the state’s 36 counties voting to opt out of the program for now.
