Can decriminalizing drugs ever be a responsible policy given the potential for abuse and addiction?

 @FrogDennyRepublican from Tennessee agreed…3mos3MO

Oregon leaders are so pathetic & anyone who voted for a “Crack is awesome” Lib, pls stay out of Red States since you’re miserable now

So the Left wants hard drugs to be legal (because it's intolerant and reactionary to say a person can't consume what he pleases) but ALSO wants to BAN GMOs (because they're unhealthy)? Excuse me??? DRUGS are FAR more unhealthy than GMOS ever could be. If anyone reading this supports banning GMOs but legalising even the SOFTEST of drugs, please consider how absurd this contradiction is!

It's definitely a complex issue. On one hand, the initial move towards decriminalization aimed to treat drug addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal one. But it's clear that the surge in overdose deaths and addiction rates is deeply concerning. Finding a balance between public safety, public health, and personal freedom can be quite challenging. What are your thoughts on this situation?

Drugs should be illegalized and monitored, people are dying and they're becoming legalized again?

I understand, but I’m disappointed. I think that decriminalization would have been successful if it had been enacted nation-wide, rather than Oregon becoming a haven for hard drug users from all over the country.

Wrong motion to pass in my opinion, we need to stop criminalizing all types of drugs and socialize marijuana use, stop focusing on a few isolated cases and look at the overall picture of the benefit of keeping drug use non criminal.

Question.... Has Oregon become known as the place to go if they want to kill themself? Can a person who does want to overdose, refuse narcan or any other treatment?

 @9KGN82Sfrom Maine commented…3mos3MO

I hesitate. But Oregon might have good reasons to ban hard drugs again.
