    Not to get lost with all the Biden vs Trump election stuff, I wanted to make a thread on this. Oregon passed a vote to decriminalize all drugs. Not just marijuana and shrooms.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/11/04/election-drugs-oregon-new-jersey/%3FoutputType%3Damp


    Oregon voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly passed a measure to decriminalize the possession of street drugs, becoming the first state to embrace a plan billed as a way to drastically narrow drug arrests.

    The passage of Oregon’s Measure 110 means the state’s residents will no longer face arrests or prison sentences for carrying small amounts of drugs like cocaine, heroin, oxycontin and methamphetamine. The measure, which passed by almost 60 percent, also lays out groundwork for people with addictions to receive treatment as opposed to jail time.

    The measure also reduces drug misdemeanor charges to noncriminal offenses, institutes a $100 fine and requires offenders to be screened for drug addiction. For people caught with large quantities of substances, the penalty has been reduced from a felony charge to a misdemeanor.

    I’m happy that it actually happened, but I suspect that they won’t be an encouraging example, since places like Portland are encouraging of anarchy.

    I could imagine the propaganda being let out about bums openly using heroin

    Anyone that wants meth can get meth. Any drug for that matter.

    I though like the idea of an anti-climatic ending to Breaking Bad where some big business like Coca Cola comes in as soon as it is legalized and Gus and Walt can't compete at their price point and just go out of business.

    Oregon also legalized psychedelic mushrooms to be used in a clinical setting.

    Also Arizona, New Jersey, Montana, and South Dakota bills to allow recreational marijuana has passed.


    It was the whole state that passed it. Not just Portland.

    What great timing SF is tossing all the homeless out of the hotels they posted them in and are trying to figure out what to do with them.

    I am very interested to see how this plays out and how it affects things like the prison population, crime rates, and police resources

    My parents are from Oregon and they were surprised, at least from when they grew up there Oregon was a different place. Hope the Oregon drug experiment goes well. I can imagine most drug users are able to take drugs and still work and function well Hope those that are or become drug addicts don't become a great burden on the state. With the way some Oregon government officials act I'm guessing if drug use does become a burden resulting in more poverty, they will deny and blame something else, possibly global warming.

    If they would like some methheads and drug addicts for a larger sample size, I'm sure my state would be happy to send many their way.

    This sounds like a perfect example of "the path to hell is paved with good intentions".

    Agreed. Imagine thinking something easily accessible would used less because it's illegal.

    They might have a case if no one did meth anyway, but even then, decriminalizing it won't just randomly create new addicts.
