Event Description:

Join us at our next Chacruna Community Forum on Wednesday, August 12th, featuring Sam Chapman, campaign manager for the Oregon IP 34 Initiative, seeking to create the first ever state-wide regulated psilocybin program in the country.

Sam will provide an update on the campaign’s progress, discuss his experience as campaign manager, and offer insights as to what the future of psilocybin therapy will look like in Oregon and beyond, should IP 34 win this November. He will review what the campaign’s proposed model of treatment does and does not do before discussing who this treatment stands to benefit.

Sam Chapman is the Campaign Manager for the Yes On IP 34 Campaign (aka the Yes On Psilocybin Therapy campaign) in Oregon, a ballot initiative campaign seeking to create the first ever state wide regulated Psilocybin therapy program in the United States.

Sam has over a decade of experience in advocating for progressive drug policy reforms at the local, state, and national level. His previous experience includes consulting for statewide political campaigns, assisting local governments in writing rules and regulations, and identifying new opportunities within emerging industries. In 2013 Sam co-authored House Bill 3460, the Oregon law that legalized medical marijuana dispensaries. Sam has been a resident of Oregon for 20 years. He holds a baccalaureate degree from the University of Oregon in Philosophy and Political Science.
