We additionally consider that Oregon is the optimum setting for this experiment to happen efficiently. As one of many first states to legalize medical and leisure marijuana, the regulatory companies and authorized neighborhood right here have substantial expertise with the rollout and implementation of drug liberalization regimes. Our colleague at Emerge Law Group, Dave Kopilak, is a long-time hashish lawyer who was one of many drafters of Measure 91 (which legalized leisure hashish) and was the first drafter of Measure 109, and the textual content of Measure 109 bears the imprint of lots of the classes discovered through the course of marijuana legalization. For those that have joined us on the rocky highway from pre-legal medical marijuana dispensaries to the strong regulatory scheme we at the moment work inside, this ought to be welcome information.
The first characteristic of Measure 109 is its two-year growth interval, which is now set to start on January 1, 2021, and can finish on December 31, 2022. This growth interval is in place for a number of causes, however primarily, it’s there as a result of nobody has ever labored with state legislators and regulatory companies to design a therapeutic psychedelics program prior to now, and there isn’t a sense in dashing by way of the nuts and bolts of such a program. The growth interval will give the Oregon Health Authority the time it must undertake guidelines implementing Measure 109, with the recommendation of the to-be-created Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board, and also will enable time for any proposed legislative adjustments to Measure 109 to work their means by way of in a minimally disruptive vogue.
We can be paying shut consideration to the findings of the Advisory Board and the enter of different stakeholders as this program develops; keep tuned for extra.
