Election 2022: Estacada voters approving ban on psilocybin
Estacada residents are approving Measure 3-584, which will temporarily prohibit psilocybin-related business inside the city limits.
In the first round of election results released by Clackamas County at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, Estacada was approving the prohibition on a margin of 64% yes, to 35.96% no.
State law allows the operation, manufacturing and distribution of psilocybin related businesses. The state will begin issuing permits in 2023, unless a municipality has a permanent or temporary ban in place.
The Estacada City Council referred the question to voters.
The prohibition is for two years, and would need to return to voters for renewal.
