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.
