HR Council To Go With OHA Rules For Psilocybin

The Hood River City Council has chosen to use Oregon Health Authority administrative rules for psilocybin manufacturing and service centers that were approved under Measure 109 in Oregon two years ago.  Councilors could have chosen to have the City develop its own time, manner, and place restrictions, or referred to the voters in November a measure to either prohibit the psilocybin centers in Hood River or place a two-year moratorium on them.  Councilor Megan Saunders felt the OHA rules under development will be sufficient.  The vote to adopt the OHA rules was 6-1, with Erick Haynie opposing.  He wanted to refer the issue to voters for a prohibition or moratorium.  OHA will start processing psilocybin applications at the start of 2023.
