RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I, too, was disappointed in the choice between 57 and 61. I believe that we have way too many people incarcerated in the US and also in Oregon. We should not be jailing people for simple drug use or possession.
Drugs need to be decriminalized and made legal and taxed. We could have "Drug stores" similar to the liquor stores where adults over 18 could purchase their drugs legally. It is only a small percentage of the general populace that use drugs, other than the norrmal experimentation that all kids do with both alcohol and cigarettes. Just like the poor, we shall always have drug users amongst us.
What other country in the world has a WAR against its own people than the US?
I am in favor of permanently delaying Measure 57.
