Oregon’s Secretary of State this month approved language for a ballot initiative that would make psychedelic mushrooms legal among licensed therapists.
The ballot initiative would make it legal for licensed people to produce, administer, and possess psilocybin mushrooms. It would also reduce criminal penalties for possessing it. Psilocybin is a Schedule I drug, defined as one with no medical use and the high potential for abuse. Possession of psilocybin mushrooms is a felony.
