Where is… [Oregon… psilocybe mushrooms]
…according to attorney Vince Sliwoski [at Harris Bricken Law Firm], “For better access and affordability, you need broad decriminalization merged with a retail or storefront distribution model.”
Sliwoski does not have high hopes for the future of Oregon’s psilocybin services program… while he is not concerned about the federal government stepping in and shutting Oregon’s nascent psilocybin operation down, he does believe the state’s “model will be expensive and cumbersome from a user perspective. Many people simply won’t be able to afford ‘psilocybin services,’ while others won’t have the patience to go through the relatively intensive protocol for supervised use.” More than twenty Oregon counties voted to opt out of (i.e., prohibit) the state’s psilocybin services program. Some of the counties’ bans are temporary; others are permanent… individual cities in Oregon can circumvent their county’s ban by going in a different direction. In other words: If a county opted out of Measure 109 this past November, a city within that same county could have voted to allow psilocybin services. The reverse is also true (i.e., a city can opt out even if its county opted in.)
