The FENTANYL Fallout: Why Oregon REVERSED Its Liberal Drug Laws

YouTube player

In a dramatic pivot, Oregon Governor Kate Brown has signed a bill reinstating criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of hard drugs, marking a significant reversal of the state’s previous liberal drug policy initiated in 2020. The initial approach, inspired by models like Portugal’s, sought to decriminalize hard drugs and redirect marijuana tax revenue to addiction services. However, this policy faced criticism as addiction and overdose rates soared, notably from fentanyl, prompting bipartisan legislative efforts to roll back these measures. Despite the reversal, concerns linger over the effectiveness of re-criminalization and its impact on drug-related tourism and societal damage already inflicted. Critics argue that without adequate addiction services and support systems, simply changing the legal status of drug possession may not address the root causes of the crisis.
