Oregon becomes first state to decriminalize heroin and cocaine and meth


Oregon became the first state to decriminalize hard drugs like heroin, cocaine and meth in a 59-41% vote as of early Wednesday morning, according to the Associated Press.

Oregon’s new drug policy called “The Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act” takes a different approach to those caught with small amounts of heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine. It will place them in a drug rehab program, instead of going to jail, and  impose a fine of $100.  Fines are  waived if the user is evaluated at Addiction Recovery Centers.

The services will be funded by the marijuana tax revenue which or Oregon receives more than a $100 million dollars per years.

People with MDMA; 2 grams of cocaine or methamphetamine; 12 grams of psilocybin mushrooms; and 40 doses of LSD, oxycodone or methadone will receive the fines and be ordered to go to drug rehabilitation programs.
