2 ballot measures challenge state drug laws

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


Ballot Measure 110, approved by voters in 2020, eliminated most penalties for hard drugs (meth, cocaine, heroin, etc…). Clackamas County Commissioners say this has caused a drug crisis to overwhelm their county. Clackamas Commissioner have responded to this issue by approving two advisory ballot measures to their County voters to be on the ballot in May 2024.

Here are the two advisory measures:

#1. Should legislators representing Clackamas County introduce/pass legislation repealing provisions of Measure 110 that decriminalize illegal drugs, including for juveniles?

#2. Should Governor Kotek call a special legislative session to address Measure 110’s drug decriminalization and its impacts on crime/homelessness?
