Portland Officials Seek Solutions in Portugal for Their Growing Addiction Crisis

YouTube player

When Portland’s leadership decides they need a crash course in drug decriminalization, where do they set their sights? None other than Portugal, a nation hailed for its progressive approach to drug-related issues. Ah, Portland! Eager to discover the golden ticket to manage their spiraling drug crisis, Oregon’s top minds believe an international jaunt is the answer. Portugal, with its history of successful drug decriminalization and a sharp decrease in overdose rates, had once served as the inspiration for Oregon’s Measure 110. Yet, as the streets of Portland cry out for solutions, the reality of Oregon’s attempt at decriminalization starkly contrasts with Portugal’s experience. With Oregon recording dismal numbers in addiction services and results that seem straight out of a satirical playbook, it’s evident that the imitation game didn’t pan out as expected. Maybe the trip will lead to some enlightenment, or perhaps it’s just another photo-op against a picturesque European backdrop. Meanwhile, Portland, with its undeniable charm and promise, waits for a revival.
