Breaking Barriers with the Nation’s First All-Drug Decriminalization Measure on the November Ballot

Drug Policy Action is currently backing Measure 110, a groundbreaking all-drug decriminalization and treatment initiative, in Oregon.

The Oregon Secretary of State’s office released a report in August by the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission (CJC), an independent government agency, revealing that if Measure 110 passes in November, it will reduce racial disparities in drug arrests by an astounding 95%.
