Ep030 - Psilocybin Society with Tom & Sheri Eckert

This week Amanda is joined by Tom and Sheri Eckert to speak about psychedelics and the 2020 Psilocybin Services Initiative of Oregon. There are even a few Psilly stories squeezed in. Tom and Sheri founded the Oregon Psilocybin Society and are currently working hard to help push the legalization of these mushrooms in Oregon state. From Tom and Sheri's website:

The Oregon Psilocybin Society (OPS) is proposing a framework for regulating the supervised use of psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychoactive compound produced by more than 200 species of mushrooms. The proposal is being formatted as a ballot initiative measure which aims to make supervised Psilocybin Service -- shown safe and effective in research settings -- accessible to the public here in Oregon. Under the proposed measure, any individual over 21 years of age, upon attaining medical clearance from a physician, could participate in a sequence of sessions, provided on-site at a state licensed Psilocybin Service Center. The service progression would include, at minimum, a preparation session, a psilocybin administration session, and an integration session. All sessions would be facilitated by trained and certified Psilocybin Service Facilitators who are registered with the state.
