According to AP, Oregonians have made their state the first in the United States of America (USA) to decriminalize use of all drugs, including cocaine and heroin, after voting to approve Measure 110.
However, the approval of the measure doesn’t mean that the state has legalized the drugs.
Instead, Oregon will remove criminal penalties, including prison time, for possessing small amounts of currently illegal drugs, and will give those caught with drugs the option of either paying a $100 fine or getting a “completed health assessment” at an addiction recovery center.
The state will also now redirect existing marijuana sales tax revenues and savings from the measure — for example, savings from reduced prison time — toward setting up a more expansive drug addiction treatment and recovery program.
