Civil Discourse – Should Measure 110 be Repealed?
LBCC’s Civil Discourse Program is hosting a debate on the proposition, Measure 110 should be repealed. The Zoom debate will occur on Monday, October 9th from 3-5pm. Registration is required on Eventbrite.
Oregon’s Measure 110, passed in November 2020 by 58.46% of voters, is a landmark drug policy that decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of hard drugs including heroin, methamphetamine, LSD, and oxycodone. Instead of criminal penalties, it focuses on providing addiction treatment and harm reduction services. The measure aims to prioritize a public health approach to drug addiction and reduce the incarceration of individuals for drug offenses.
