Regulators issued in Oregon First round of rules He governs the new psilocybin treatment program approved by voters.

The rules, released by the Oregon Health Authority last week, outline manufacturing requirements and various safety procedures, as well as the permitted types of psilocybin products.

according to OregonianAnd the This is “only the first set of rules for a program due to enter into force in January 2023,” while “the rest of the rules will be considered in the fall and approved by December 31.”

Oregon Psilocybin Services, a division within the Oregon Health Department’s Department of Public Health’s Health Protection Center tasked with implementing the new law, provides some context around the new rules in message to the public last week.

The agency said it “received approximately 200 written and oral comments during the public comment period that took place from April 1 to 22, 2022 and has relied on those comments to improve the final rules.”

“In some cases, public comments were incorporated into the approved rules and in others they were not. OPS evaluated competing priorities and perspectives received during the rule-making process when conducting reviews, bearing in mind fairness, public health and safety,” He said the message. In addition, OPS considered the legal authority of the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act and the scope of existing rulemaking. The OPS has received many comments that may be relevant to future rulemaking but were not related to the content of the rules proposed in this subset of rules. It is important to note that this letter does not address every change to the draft rules. Instead, it responds to the most popular themes observed from the public comment period.”

Among the newly revealed rules was the decision to allow manufacturers to grow one type of mushroom: Psilocybe Cubensis.

“OPS has received comments requesting that rules allow additional species of mushrooms and the use of additional substrates. The Oregon Advisory Board of Psilocybe has recommended limiting cultivation to Psilocybe Cubensis and banning substrates that may pose a health and safety risk. To avoid risks associated with fatal and toxic manifestations, the possibility of paralysis and pathogens for wood-lovers Animal-borne diseases, OPS endorsed this recommendation in the Final Rules. However, although raw manure is banned, the use of finished manure is permitted. OPS looks forward to considering additional species in the future through continued dialogue with the public and recommendations from the Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board” , came in the message.

in 2020, Oregon voters pass 110 . polling procedurewhich legalized the therapeutic use of psilocybin and decriminalized all drugs.

The successful passage of the proposal was widely hailed as a major breakthrough for the drug reform movement.

“Today’s victory is a historic announcement that it is time to stop criminalizing people for drug use,” He said Cassandra Frederick of the Drug Policy Alliance, one of the groups that lobbied for the Measure 110 ballot. “Action 110 is arguably the biggest blow to the war on drugs to date. It shifts the focus to where it belongs – on people and public health – and removes one of the most common justifications for enforcement Law to harass, arrest, prosecute, imprison and deport people. As we’ve seen with the domino effect to legalize marijuana, we expect this victory to inspire other states to enact their own drug decriminalization policies that prioritize health over punishment.”

“While drug decriminalization cannot completely repair our dysfunctional and repressive criminal legal system or harm the unregulated drug market, the shift from absolute prohibition to drug decriminalization is a huge step forward in this fight,” Frederick continued. “It paves the way toward treating drug use as a health issue, restores individual freedom, removes one of the biggest pillars of police abuse, and dramatically reduces government waste.”
