Oregon: Jackson County voters may get option to vote on psilocybin in November

Jackson County voters may decide in November whether they want to ban psychedelic mushroom businesses.

Jackson County Commissioners will hold a public hearing about the potential ban at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Jackson County Courthouse Auditorium, 10 S. Oakdale Avenue, Medford.

In 2020, 55.75% of Oregon voters approved the growing and therapeutic use of psilocybin mushrooms, commonly known as magic mushrooms. Jackson County voters approved psilocybin mushrooms by a narrower margin, with 51.19% in favor.

Growing and using psilocybin mushrooms will become legal in January 2023, giving the Oregon Health Authority time to create regulations and a licensing process for growers and treatment providers. The mushrooms must be consumed under the supervision of a licensed provider.
