Many counties are voting to opt out… [of M109]
…you won’t be able to purchase it and take it home, Angela Allbee said… if you were to just look at the map… you’ll quickly grow concerned and confused about the future of Measure 109 in Oregon. After all, didn’t the state vote “Yes?”
…clients will have an opportunity to take psilocybin in a controlled, licensed service center overseen by licensed facilitators. “Psilocybin products will be sold to the clients, and that’s where the psilocybin services, the actually journey takes place,” Allbee said… If you take a look at a political map of Oregon, much of the state is conservative. The highly populated, liberal cities are what make Oregon a blue state. Portland alone houses 15% of the Oregon population. Because of these small liberal cities with large populations, Oregon has passed some of the most progressive drug laws in the country. But, most of the state’s counties are against using psilocybin… psychedelic… has huge potential and is showing positive changes in the regulations surrounding it. But, these changes aren’t going to happen overnight. It took over 15 years for Cannabis to go from medical to recreational in Oregon. There is no telling what the timeline looks like for psychedelics… only seven of the fifteen counties that initially voted yes have officially decided not to bring it back to the ballot. Another five counties have not yet decided if they will be voting on it again– two of which voted no in the 2020 election… however, the seven counties that will not be taking it to a vote still represent a third of Oregon’s population (nearly 1.5 million).
