The state of Oregon Decriminalized possession of hard drugs. And wouldn’t you know it, overdoses soared 700 percent.

Who’d have thought it?

We can’t just blame the bleeding heart leftist politicians for this. It was the idiot, bleeding heart voters who agreed to this foolishness.

After passing Ballot Measure 110 in 2020, went into effect in February of last year and was the first of its kind in the U.S. Now it is no longer a felony or even a misdemeanor to possess drugs in Oregon. The worst druggies can get is a $100 fine.

But now, overdoses are soaring in the state.

Per the Daily Mail:

Yet Lily Morgan, a Republican state politician representing Grants Pass, said lives are being lost while the state waits for the ballot measure to have a positive effect.

‘Director, you’ve mentioned a couple of times that you’re waiting to see – and yet we have overdoses increasing at drastic rates,’ she said.

‘In my community, a 700 percent increase in overdoses and a 120 percent increase in deaths.

‘How long do we wait before we have an impact that we’re saving lives?’

Steve Allen, Oregon’s behavioral health director, admitted that the state has seen a “dramatic increase” in deaths.

Such a great idea, huh?
