Portland, once the darling city, celebrated for its quirks and “Keep Portland Weird” vibes, seems to be veering off course. The New York Times, which once lauded the city’s character, has recently released multiple articles highlighting the side-effects of Portland’s Measure 110 — a decision that decriminalized possession of small quantities of drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl. The aftermath? An alarming rise in addiction problems, crime rates, and more visible drug usage in open spaces. While the intention might have been to set a path for addicts towards rehabilitation, the data paints a different story. Oregon has seen triple the number of opioid overdose deaths since 2019 and a staggering increase in shooting incidents. Meanwhile, Portland, touted as a liberal beacon, now grapples with a challenge to its identity.
