Signature gathering begins for Oregon initiative to decriminalize small amounts of all drugs

Backers of an initiative to decriminalize small amounts of illicit drugs and redirect most revenue generated by recreational marijuana sales toward drug abuse treatment started collecting signatures in Portland this week.

Advocates need 112,020 signatures to qualify for the November 2020 ballot.

Campaign manager Peter Zuckerman said the proponents will decide to push ahead with the initiative depending on the success in collecting signatures this month.

The effort is called Initiative Petition 44 or the 2020 Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act. It is backed by the Drug Policy Alliance, the same group behind the 2014 ballot measure that legalized recreational marijuana in Oregon.
