Sen. Boquist: Drug advocates shake-up, gas price pain, more…

By Oregon State Senator Brian Boquist,
Highlights, excerpts from Sen. Boquist newsletter

• Tragic news of two Portland teenagers dying within 24 hours of each other, both from fentanyl overdoses. China is the number one supplier of fentanyl to the United States. Kids overdosing on opioids is becoming a problem as a school board just recently approved the use of Narcan, the life-saving nasal spray, in its district if someone is overdosing on an opioid.

• 2 of the people that worked to get psychedelic mushrooms legalized in Oregon are resigning from the state advisory board due to having a major conflict of interest.


• The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Oregon reached an all-time high of $4.72 last Thursday, according to AAA, as crude oil prices skyrocketed amid fears of a disruption of Russian oil imports to the United States. Oregon’s gas prices per gallon are the 4th highest in the nation. Costs will likely continue to rise as the goal is to get everyone on GREEN energy in the future.


• Timber Unity calls on Gov. Brown to address rising fuel costs.


• Six former Democrat lawmakers are starting a PAC to run candidates who are NOT psychotic leftists like the clowns who currently run our state. Finally people are realizing supermajorities are BAD for Oregon!


• Republican gubernatorial candidates Dr. Bud Pierce, former State Reps. Christine Drazan and Bob Tiernan, and conservative writer Bridget Barton were endorsed by Oregon Right to Life PAC.


• Sen. Dallas Heard resigns from state GOP chair. Sen. Heard isn’t everyone’s favorite person, but his statement is telling about the current Oregon Republican Party and how fragmented it is.

• Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden is okay with the corrupt and non-eco-friendly practice of extracting minerals like lithium because that mineral is used to create batteries for his favorite electric vehicles. It’s infuriating how an alleged “environmentalist” can get away with this, yet block the ability to produce domestic oil and energy.


• The good and bad of the 2022 legislative session.
