TOLEDO — Communities around Oregon are deciding what to do now that psilocybin has been made legal for use in supervised facilities in the state, with many, now including Toledo, leaving it up to voters to decide during the next election.

During the Toledo City Council’s regular meeting July 20, the council approved a ballot measure for the Nov. 8, 2022 General Election that would temporarily ban psilocybin businesses within the city until Dec. 21, 2024, if approved.
