I'm feeling hopeful for the future of drug policy reform in the US. Oregon becomes our first state to decriminalize all drug use today, following behind the good example of Portugal and other countries that have seen reductions in huge crime from this move.
@Lambdanaut I hope eventually the US gets decriminalisation because fines & diversion programmes sound a lot like the reason a lot of US people are currently in jail (especially through building an alternative "non-criminal" path to prison around diversion courts & punishments for non-attendance or inability to pay fines).
