Yep, that ‘Ole measure 110 passed in 2019 that was gonna make a big dent in the drug problem. This was going to occur with the help of the $268 M dollars from the states cannabis tax. Oh great, a bunch of “consultants” produced a bunch of reports. They seem to have an uncanny grasp of the obvious.
Here’s the way it’s supposed to work. Somebody with a quantity of heroin, meth, coke or fent. Gets a ticket. They can take care of the situation by calling for treatment. Yeah…that one didn’t work either. Less than 1% called for rehab.
The goofs pushing the measure said it would change the drug issue by getting abusers into treatment. Well, one part is true…It damn sure changed the drug scene in OR. In 2019 there were 84 OD deaths, by the end of June, this year that number had jumped to 1100. A phenomenal increase to say the least.
In the family oriented city of Portland it’s not unusual to see some fool shooting up on the sidewalk, in broad daylight. Yeah those progressive legislators sure did change the drug scene in Oregon.
BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST, TURN ON YOUR CAMERA, STAY SAFE and deadly if you must
