Oregon Votes to Decriminalize Drugs Such as Heroin, Cocaine, and Meth With Addiction Treatment Initiative-Right Move?
Oregon became the first state to decriminalize illegal street drugs such as heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine when they voted in favor of Measure 110 by a 55.8% majority.
Recent headlines of massive border seizures regarding methamphetamine have been making the rounds lately, showing just how large of a demand there is for the drug in the United States and how the problem continues to annually escalate.
