OREGON STATE POLICE: What you need to know about Ballot Measure 110

Ballot Measure 110 goes into effect today, February 1, 2021.
Ballot measure 110 does not make possession of drugs legal, it just decriminalizes personal possession of illegal drugs.
What it does is it reclassifies possession of small amounts of drugs as a civil violation, like a traffic offense. The penalty becomes a $100 fine, which a person can avoid by agreeing to participate in a health assessment.

The measure makes it a noncriminal violation like a traffic ticket to possess the following:

• Less than 1 gram of heroin
• Less than 1 gram, or less than 5 pills, of MDMA
• Less than 2 grams of methamphetamine
• Less than 40 units of LSD
• Less than 12 grams of psilocybin
• Less than 40 units of methadone
• Less than 40 pills of oxycodone
• Less than 2 grams of cocaine

The measure also reduces from a felony to a misdemeanor simple possession of substances containing:

• 1 to 3 grams of heroin
• 1 to 4 grams of MDMA
• 2 to 8 grams of methamphetamine
• 2 to 8 grams of cocaine

Selling, distributing & manufacturing drugs remains illegal and if convicted you will go to jail! See Less
