Silo Wellness to Testify on Oregon Psilocybin Therapy Land Use Restrictions at Jackson County Planning Commission's Thursday Hearing; Other Corporate Updates
Springfield, Oregon--(Newsfile Corp. - October 31, 2022) - Silo Wellness Inc. (CSE: SILO) (OTCQB: SILFF) (FSE: 3K7A) ("Silo Wellness" or the "Company"), an Oregon-based publicly traded psychedelics company, announced that its Chief Executive Officer Mike Arnold, an Oregon lawyer, will testify Thursday, November 3, 2022, at the Jackson County Oregon Planning Commission's 9:00 a.m. hearing regarding amendments to the Jackson County Land Development Ordinance to add psilocybin therapy and retreat time, place, and manner regulations.
Silo recently announced an intended Jackson County psychedelic ranch retreat center near Ashland, Oregon. One of the major risk factors in the Oregon psilocybin industry is the real-time evolution of the legal and regulatory framework. Several cities and counties around the Oregon are voting November 8 on whether or not to opt out of Oregon's Ballot Measure 109 Psilocybin Service Initiative system. The state regulators are to begin accepting psilocybin therapy and retreat license applications in January 2023. Oregon is the first state to legalize psychedelic therapy and retreat business activities with Colorado hopefully following suit in the election next week.
Arnold commented: "Even if a county has not opted out of Oregon's BM109, that doesn't mean it can't amend its land use rules to effectively exclude a property or class of properties from use an Oregon psilocybin clinic, therapy center or psychedelic retreat center. As a lawyer who assisted clients in the Oregon recreational cannabis industry, we frequently saw missteps where entrepreneurs secured properties by purchase or lease only to find out later that the county or city would not allow them to operate there due to new local land use laws. This is why Silo Wellness is attempting to secure LOIs for now before making risky long-term property commitments. The urban-rural divide in Oregon is real and the effect of local political considerations are notoriously difficult to predict around here. Afterall, Oregon's state motto is 'She flies with her own wings.'"
Silo Wellness encourages advocates to attend and testify at Thursday's hearing regarding the low impact of psilocybin activities on the community. Testimony is limited to five minutes per person and can be done remotely at https://jacksoncountyor.zoom.us/j/94440098728.
Silo Wellness Requests Oregon Property Owner Expressions of Interest for Collaborating on Psilocybin Licensing
Silo Wellness continues to tour Oregon properties and discuss collaboration opportunities with other entrepreneurs. The Company requests expressions of interest from Oregon property owners who may be considering participation in the regulatory regime under Oregon Ballot Measure 109.
Mike Arnold commented, "It is our goal to leverage our platform to help empower Oregonians who may each have a piece of the puzzle - facilitation experience, business experience, property, capital, or a passion for the medicine - and bring them together to help make this industry by Oregonians for Oregonians."
