If you’d like to see fewer people on our streets and want to reduce systemic racism, I urge you to vote “Yes” on Measure 110 on Nov. 3. This measure, which is the Drug Addiction Treatment & Recovery Act decriminalizes low-level drug possession and establishes a pathway to addiction recovery for those who want it.
Measure 110 effectively removes drugs as an excuse for law enforcement to approach or detain people. The measure also increases access to treatment and recovery for people who are addicted. Measure 110 would be paid from Oregon’s existing marijuana tax, along with reduced spending within our criminal justice system due to reductions in arrests and incarcerations.
