DAILY MAIL — The streets of Portland resemble an ‘open air drug market’ after state officials’ scheme to decriminalize hard drugs led to a surge in overdose deaths, critics claim.

Law enforcement agents say that the streets of Portland are full of homeless addicts openly buying and selling drugs and that signs of drug addiction are actually increasing statewide, Fox News reported.

Photos show the desperate situation in the liberal Pacific Northwest city, where people can be seen shooting up drugs or passed out in broad daylight.

The dreadful scene comes 16 months after Ballot Measure 110-which passed with 58.8 percent support- decriminalized hard drugs in the Democrat-run state.

Oregon was the first state in the United States to decriminalize possession of personal-use amounts of heroin, methamphetamine, LSD, oxycodone and other drugs after voters approved a ballot measure in 2020 to decriminalize hard drugs. […]

  1. I have lived about 14 miles from Portland for many years in a home that has been in the family about fifty years ( I’m a third generation Oregonian). I endeavor never to go inside the Portland city limits. I broke my rule today, because I’m looking for a good sturdy used bicycle to keep in my bug-out vehicle. The energy in Portland is so foul, just driving through the city, I felt sick in my stomach and light-headed…then I felt an oppressive feeling, like I could not get enough air. When I returned home I told my friend, I will never set foot inside the city limits again. I have had two dreams of watching Portland as it is totally destroyed, as in Sodom…and I have no doubt that this will happen soon.

    • I resided in Clackamas county for nearly 25 years. The city was always a bit edgy, but if I drove into the core downtown area I usually felt pretty safe. I always rode the light rail system to the airport to save having to park my vehicle. It is a cryin’ shame what leftist policies have done to Portland. Opium Wars 2.0. All of this is deliberate and calculated to damage the population.

  2. I watch some of your downtown scenes from major cities on FB and was shocked to see the extent of the detritus.

    Before becoming addicted, they had a choice.

    Now, they’r useless, with very little chance of redemption.

    Imo : Wheat from chaff.

  3. Addiction is a disease, with it’s roots in a multitude of origins. Child abuse, genetics poverty to name a few. These root causes are the ones where we as a society are failing. Addiction is merely a symptom to a much bigger problem that no one cares to acknowledge.
