Oregon legislators must fully fund drug addiction programs that Oregonians voted for


Oregon voters made history by passing Measure 110, the Drug Addiction Treatment & Recovery Act, which decriminalized personal possession of all drugs and expanded access to addiction treatment and other health services.

Halting drug arrests is only the beginning; we need to keep up the pressure and remind legislators to fully fund this new law so that more Oregonians can access life-saving treatment and recovery services. Tell your Oregon legislators to fund these vital programs without delay.

I'm a constituent writing to you with an urgent request.

Please prioritize fully funding Measure 110, the Drug Addiction Treatment & Recovery Act, this year. This new Oregon law will increase access to life-saving addiction treatment and recovery services that people experiencing substance use disorder - and their loved ones - desperately need. I ask that you pass the bill and fund it as quickly as possible so that life-saving services can be provided through the state without additional delay.

Oregonians across the state voted to pass the measure into law by a 17-point margin. We made our voices clear that it's time to shift Oregon away from criminalizing drug addiction to treating it as a health issue that requires care and treatment. As your constituent, I am counting on you to make sure that the will of the voters is carried out by fully funding the law this year.

Oregonians have made themselves clear: It's time to stop punishing people for addiction and transition to a more humane and effective approach. I'm counting on you to be my voice in Salem and make sure that this new law is fully funded without delay, as voters intended.
