Psilocybin Services - Clatsop County Action

Clatsop County, Seaside Voters Approve Two-Year Psilocybin Implementation Delays


In November 2020, Oregon voters approved Ballot Measure 109, known as the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act. It allows for the manufacture and administration of psilocybin at licensed facilities.

Oregon Health Authority plans on accepting applications for psilocybin-related licenses in January 2023. Since OHA has not completed the rulemaking process, the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners and Seaside City Council referred ballot measures to their respective voters asking if they wanted to temporarily delay state-licensed psilocybin product manufacturers and psilocybin service centers within unincorporated Clatsop County and within Seaside city limits, in order to allow more time to adopt regulations on the operation of psilocybin facilities which are in the best interests of the health, safety and welfare of their residents.

Both measures were approved in the Nov. 8, 2022 General Election.
