The use of psilocybin is on the ballot again for many Oregon voters
…with so many cities and counties voting on the issue in November , it could lead to bans across large portions of the state.
…psilocybin has become hotly-contested across the state. Some counties that voted for it in 2020 are now voting on it again, like Clackamas, Tillamook and Deschutes. It’s not on the ballot in Oregon’s largest cities: Portland, Salem, Eugene… but aside from pockets in the northwestern part of Oregon, psilocybin is on the ballot in 27 of the state’s 36 counties… if a town opts into allowing psilocybin (as Ashland and Medford have) while its county opts out (as Jackson County might), the use of psilocybin would be allowed within those specific municipalities but not within the county as a whole… [in Lane County, voters in Cottage Grove, Creswell, Dunes City and Junction City will cast ballots on a full ban of psilocybin-related businesses within city limits… Coburg voters will decide whether to enact a two-year ban while the state develops a licensing and regulatory program.]
