Oregon became the first state to legalize psychedelic mushrooms in November 2023, when voters approved Measure 109. The measure allows for the possession, use, and regulated sale of psilocybin mushrooms, a psychedelic drug that has been used for centuries in religious and spiritual ceremonies. The measure also creates a program to license and regulate the production and sale of psilocybin products, as well as the creation of a state-regulated program to provide supervised psilocybin services. This historic decision is a major step forward in the decriminalization of psychedelic drugs, and will likely lead to more states following suit.
