[Oregon] city council: voters must decide on psilocybin presence in town

After lengthy discussion during its July 18 2022 work session, the Newberg City Council [in Oregon] unanimously voted during the business session in favor of a permanent ban and referring the question to the voters.

Rogers said his limited research on the subject determined that psylocibins can be used for treatment of depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), as well as helping smokers quit the habit. He added that it appears that the market for psychedelic mushrooms is projected to be in the billions by 2027, “so it’s big money.” New councilor Peggy Kilburg said her views paralleled McBride’s and that people who want to purchase psilocybin mushrooms could probably get them elsewhere. “From what I understand there are a lot of people that aren’t using it for medical reasons,” she said. “I just think we should veer away from it.” He agreed with the philosophy of taking the issues to the voters, but the idea of the council letting voters decide what businesses will be allowed and which will not, “that gets a bit sticky for me, but I think in this case we’ve got something that is so new that I could see it.”
