In what has come as an extremely controversial law that was passed, Oregon voters have decided to legalize the possession of drugs. In other words, drug users can no longer be charged for owning or possessing drugs.
“Today’s victory is a landmark declaration that the time has come to stop criminalizing people for drug use,” said Kassandra Frederique, director of the Drug Policy Alliance. “Measure 110 is arguably the biggest blow to the war on drugs to date.”
This law came as an attempt to reform illegal drug possession in Oregon. Every year, Oregonians die due to overdoses, and many of them are not able to thrive in our society because they cannot let go off the addiction to them.
It always takes a pioneer to be able to initiate something that can legalize criminal activity in our country. The passing of this law will make it acceptable for the people of Oregon to have drugs in their possession without going to jail or prison. There are many addicts that will take advantage of this law and make profit off of it. This will open doors for dangerous drugs to come into Oregon, and for the law to make it legal. These are traits of liberal movements, where they seek to make everything acceptable and plausible to people.
Unfortunately, we are living in the end times, and we will start to see more of these things become acceptable in these days. We must continue to pray as a country for Oregon, and for the entire United States.
