Lebanon city leaders concerned about public safety and mental health are ready to say no to psilocybin again.
Voters passed a two-year moratorium on allowing psilocybin businesses in Lebanon with 61% in favor in November 2022.
City Council members discussed its future options during a work session Wednesday, Oct. 11. If they do nothing, the state framework for psilocybin manufacturing and services takes effect in November 2024.
Last week we introduced Dusty Bryant, who police evicted from Albany’s designated resting site for homeless individuals. This week, we check in to see what’s happening with Dusty.
The council also has the option, through voter referral, to ban manufacturing facilities, service facilities, or both. Alternatively, officials could determine time, place and manner regulations through a city ordinance.
