[If successful, Measure 111 establishes a right to affordable, effective health care in state constitution. Gaetano Lardieri BA, LMT, MPM writes, “Not allowing micro-dosing I would argue is borderline racist!”] The MAPS Bulletin just published an article by Ismail Ali and Jonathan Perez-Reyzin exploring the challenges and controversies of Measure 109 rulemaking. The two major controversies addressed: microdosing and entheogenic/community practice.
From the start of Oregon Health Authorities’ (OHA) process, observers have been concerned with equity and accessibility, particularly because, despite the important work of Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board’s (OPAB) Equity Subcommittee, Indigenous practitioners have not been adequately represented on OPAB or at OHA. Many thus welcomed a proposal for an entheogenic practitioners framework, drafted by Jon Dennis (who is not a member of OPAB) and subsequently recommended for adoption by both the Licensing and Equity Subcommittees. As lawyer Jon Dennis has explained, the entheogenic framework aims to increase access to the legal framework and protections of Measure 109 for religious and spiritual organizations, including Indigenous groups, who may otherwise be unable to afford or comply with the requirements of facilitator and manufacturer licenses.
