The next installment of the Oregon Health Authority’s (“OHA”) draft rules implementing the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act will be published at some point within the next four weeks. Last month, the OHA solicited rule recommendations from the public. In response, Emerge Law Group attorney Dave Kopilak made specific recommendations to the OHA that could minimize the adverse effects of Internal Revenue Code Section 280E on psilocybin licensees. Dave’s recommendations can be found here. In his comments, Dave refers to Emerge’s recent “Deep Dive” webinar on Entity Organizations and Taxes, which can be found here.
Our Psychedelics Industry Group eagerly anticipates the next installment of the OHA’s draft rules and there will be much to discuss when they are published.
In the meantime, if you have questions concerning the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act or any other laws involving psilocybin, entheogenic plants, or psychedelics in general, please contact attorneys Dave Kopilak, Kathryn Tucker, Sean Clancy, Kaci Hohmann, Alex Berger, Corinne Celko, or Russ Rotondi from our Psychedelics Industry Group.
