Oregon Psilocybin Services shares legal memorandum on religious/entheogenic practitioner proposal

PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon Health Authority’s Oregon Psilocybin Services Program has posted advice it received from the Oregon Department of Justice regarding licensure and regulatory requirements for religious/entheogenic psilocybin practitioners.

The advice is available at oregon.gov/psilocybin, under the Resources column, “Legal Memorandum” tab.

The Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board is comprised of volunteer members who are appointed by the Governor. The Board provides recommendations to OPS related to the implementation of Measure 109, the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act. All Board meetings and subcommittee meetings are open to the public and information is posted on the Oregon Psilocybin Services (OPS) website: www.oregon.gov/psilocybin.

The religious/entheogenic practitioner proposal that the Board discussed today proposes a separate category of privileges for religious/entheogenic practitioners and holds religious/entheogenic practitioners to a lessor standard of licensure or regulation by OHA.
