Harris Sliwoski attorneys, Paul Coble, Griffen Thorne, and Vincent Sliwoski, will be presenting on the “Legal and Regulatory Landscape for Psychedelics” in the following CLE webinar on January 12th, 2023, hosted by The Seminar Group.

“This program will provide an overview of emerging drug therapies, including psilocybin, ketamine infusion clinics, MDMA and other psychedelic substances. Our panel of experts will address the results of recent elections and other developments related to psychedelic drugs and new drug therapies. We will look at the process and results for Measure 109 (psilocybin licensing) and Measure 110 (controlled substance decriminalization) in Oregon, as well as future efforts to decriminalize, protect and regulate psychedelic drug use.

As the legal and regulatory frameworks of these industries begin to solidify, new opportunities are emerging for the commercialization and research of new drug therapies and alternative medicine. If you have an interest in the law of psychedelics, you don’t want to miss this review of the rapidly evolving laws and regulations in the industry.”
