State law authorizes the governing bodies of cities and counties to adopt ordinances to be referred to the voters that prohibit the establishment of psilocybin product manufacturers and psilocybin service center operators within the area subject to the city’s or county’s jurisdiction. The City of Lyons is referring to the voters an ordinance prohibiting psilocybin product manufacturers and psilocybin service center operators within the City.
