Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act (Measure 110)
In November 2020, Oregon voters passed by referendum Measure 110, or the Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act. The measure’s goal is to establish a more health-based, equitable and effective approach to drug addiction in Oregon by shifting the response to drug possession from criminalization to treatment and recovery. Under Measure 110:
- Multiple criminal sentencing laws regulating the possession of controlled substances will change from felonies to violations, and
- Offenders will be given the resources to treat their addictions and recover.
