Similar to that installment, I will highlight the major areas, and skip or skim less prominent stuff. This batch of proposed rules is 65 pages, after all.

Oregon Proposed Psilocybin Rules: Highlights

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) released the rest of its draft psilocybin rules as predicted a few weeks back. We’ve had a minute to look at them.

What Does San Francisco’s Decriminalization Resolution Actually Do?

On September 6, 2022, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to pass a resolution aimed at decriminalizing psychedelics. This is yet another victory in the battle against prohibition. But it’s important to remember that decriminalization is very different from legalization– just see my older summary of a host of decriminalization efforts. Decriminalization does

States are Missing Out on Psychedelics Regulation

In 2023, Oregon will have a regulated psilocybin market. Colorado voters will have a chance to vote on something similar this fall (although Initiative 58 would not take effect until 2024). Other than that, not a single other state has any form of psychedelic regulation in the works. Last week, an attempt to simply decriminalize

Jamaica: Psilocybin Leader

Jamaica is establishing itself as a global psilocybin leader. It surprises many people to learn that psilocybin has never been prohibited in the Caribbean nation and is not one of the controlled substances listed in Jamaica’s Dangerous Drugs Act. Over the past few years, we’ve fielded a number of inquiries in and around prospective and

California Won’t Decriminalize Psychedelics This Year

In 2021, California State Senator Scott Wiener introduced SB-519, a statewide psychedelics decriminalization bill. Senator Wiener didn’t have the support to push the bill all the way forward in 2021, so he gathered momentum for a 2022 vote. After a gutting by the California Assembly, the state won’t decriminalize psychedelics in 2022. I’ve regularly blogged on
