Election results: Multiple cities on track to ban psilocybin-related businesses

Five Lane County cities are on track to pass measures to ban psilocybin-related business, according to early voting results.

Voters in Coburg, Cottage Grove, Creswell, Dunes City and Junction City all supported the banning of psilocybin sales in their region.

The measures follow Oregon Measure 109, which voters passed in 2020. The measure approved the manufacture and therapeutic use of psilocybin — which is found in a strain of mushrooms. Oregon was the first state to do so.

The state established temporary rules for the product with permanent rules to come after Dec. 31. Under the temporary rules, people age 21 and older will be able to purchase and take psilocybin only at licensed “service centers.” The sales will not require a prescription or medical referral.
