The Measure

A growing body of evidence demonstrates that psilocybin assisted therapy is uniquely effective and has an excellent safety track record. We think that this novel approach could help alleviate the mental health crisis here in Oregon by addressing epidemics like suicide, treatment-resistant depression and anxiety, PTSD, and addiction to drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. Additionally, the measure would open doors for new research and create access to services for those interested in personal development. ~ PSI Chief Petitioners Tom & Sheri Eckert
