Oregon’s experiment with drug decriminalization appears to be coming to an end, with Gov. Kotex poised to sign a bill that would undo many of the tenets of Measure 110. To the surprise of exactly no one, the impact of the law is expected to fall the hardest on communities of color. Traci and Abe take your calls.

Hope this was a double typo in KBOO Community News headline and KBOO program note. I may disagree with Gov. Kotek, but I don't envy the position she and DA Mike Schmidt have been in since choosing to decriminalize small amounts of personal drug use during Fentanyl destruction of so many parts of our country not yet destroyed by prescription opioid abuse of the Sackler Family and McKesson Distribution corporate-capture variety.

2 recent articles by Willamette Week's ace muck raking news reporters and analysts are worth reading, discussing, sharing to clarify whatever the Wisdom of Solomon would weigh in on with such an issue as this one: We do not live in a Political Vacuum where a single issue can tip 2-Party balance, even if our 1-Party state suffers from the levels and true street\rent costs of corruption that comes from no opposition party:

Thanks much as ever for such down-to-earth and sober news analysts and discussion hosts on KBOO Community Radio as Traci Simmons and Abe Proctor.
