Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the therapeutic, supervised use of psilocybin

Oregon (P): In 2020, Oregon became the first state in the nation to legalize the therapeutic, supervised use of psilocybin. According to Measure 109, approved by 56% of state voters, the regulated use of psilocybin will be allowed in Oregon starting in 2023. Measure 109 includes a process enabling cities and counties to opt-out of the program. Local officials can decide to refer to voters either a two-year moratorium or an outright ban on psilocybin facilities within their localities.

The law restricts use to state licensed facilities with trained counselors to administer the drug. Clients must be 21 and over, and must consume the substance at an approved site under a facilitator’s supervision. This new law does not create a market for psilocybin; and the possession, consumption and manufacturing of the drug outside of a licensed facility will remain illegal.

At an August 2, meeting, Cannon Beach City Councilors decided that when psilocybin facilities become legal next year, by imposing “time, place and manner” restrictions, the city of Cannon Beach can control where and how these facilities can operate within the city limits.
