Under the new law, possession of small amounts of drugs such as heroin or methamphetamine will be as a misdemeanor and punishable by up to six months in jail.

In a controversial move, Oregon has recently re-criminalized small amounts of hard drugs in an effort to combat drug addiction and substance abuse. This reversal of the previous 2020 drug policy, which had decriminalized possession of small amounts of drugs such as heroin and methamphetamine, comes in response to concerns over rising rates of drug-related deaths and overdoses in the state.

Another failed progressive experiment that kills people bites the dust. The problem with their 2020 law was they let this out in the open. In most areas of the country, you cannot drink in public. However, in progressive cities they let you shoot up in front of school kids. You cannot smoke a cigarette in New York City without getting harassed but light up a joint and that’s OK.

I don’t drink or do drugs but I really don’t care what you do in the privacy of your own home. As long as what you do doesn’t interfere with the rights of another, have at it. However, the same reasoning behind seat belt laws could be used as an argument against legalized drug use. If you become a waste case and then take tax dollars you are now a burden on everyone doing the right thing. If you are going to legalize all this stuff then you need to remove the support systems the rest of us pay for.

There it is again! The reason progressives vote for this type of policy is they have so much money they don’t care what their tax dollars are used for.
