Clackamas County voters will decide Nov. 8 whether to approve a two-year pause on places to grow and supervise the use of psilocybin mushrooms in connection with mental health.

County commissioners voted 5-0 July 28 to refer the measure, following an extended discussion two weeks earlier with the county health officer — who also sits on the state psilocybin advisory board — and the manager of the state psilocybin services section of the Oregon Health Authority. The state agency is still writing rules for the program, and will start after Jan. 1 to accept license applications for production facilities and service centers, where the psychoactive drug can be administered.
