Oregon Lawmakers Propose Recriminalizing Drug Possession

Oregon Lawmakers , Propose Recriminalizing , Drug Possession. Three years after becoming the first state to decriminalize low-level drug possession, Oregon is poised to reverse parts of its decision, 'Vice' reports. . On January 23, Democratic lawmakers announced a proposal to recriminalize the possession of small amounts of drugs. . The proposed changes have been criticized by both harm reduction and criminal justice reform activists. The proposal would make possession a class C misdemeanor, punishable by a $1,250 fine or up to 30 days of jail time. People would still have the ability to negate those charges by participating in a deflecting program, which involves behavioral health screenings and contact with case managers. . Currently, the state's decriminalization policy considers the same offenses as class E violations, punishable by a $100 fine that can be waived by undergoing a health screening.
