Oregon Decriminalizes Hard Drugs; Heroin, Crack, Meth Possession No Longer Considered Criminal

H/T Western Journal.

What impact will this have on the health and welfare of Oregonians?

Drugs, despite their bad reputation, exist on a scale.

On one end sit the innocuous and relatively safe substances. Caffeine (yes, it’s a drug), tobacco and cannabis are all common examples that people around the world consume daily, often in legal settings.

On the other end of the spectrum sit the “hard” drugs. Methamphetamine, cocaine and opioids like heroin hook people and slowly drain the new addicts of their health and sanity.

In response to this deadly poison, most places around the world have outlawed hard drugs.

Of course, progressive Oregon is not like the rest of the world.

State voters decisively passed Measure 110 on Election Day, decriminalizing possession of small amounts of hard drugs. Now, those caught carrying the poison will only face a non-criminal violation.

According to The Oregonian, partial returns showed the measure was passed 62.5 percent to 37.5 percent.

The push to decriminalize drugs like meth and heroin was helped along by celebrities like John Legend, and with mountains of cash from Mark Zuckerberg and other elites.

Possession of larger quantities, which was a felony charge before, is now only a misdemeanor charge in most cases.

The measure also redirects cash made through marijuana taxation toward “Addiction Recovery Centers,” where those struggling with drugs are advised on treatment options.

For now, it’s unclear how big of an impact Oregonians’ bold decision will have on public health and safety.

  1. Oregon is circling the drain. If the GOOD people in Oregon don’t get their poop in a group and soundly defeat these ignorant fools who vote for this kind of crap we are most likely going to end up like the two crap holes north and south of us.
