Oregon Declares Fentanyl State Of Emergency In Portland Four Years After Decriminalizing Drugs

Oregon Governor Tina Kotek, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, and Multnomah County Chair Jessica Vega Pederson declared a state of emergency in Portland over the fentanyl crisis. The purpose of the declaration is to provide further assistance for addicts and also to crack down on pushers of the debilitating drug. A new command center will be established in Downtown Portland as a resource center for people who need immediate help. This 90-day declaration comes four years after Oregon became one of the first states in the nation to decriminalize all drug use.
