Oregon decriminalized "the possession" of certain drugs. But the act of manufacturing and selling drugs is still illegal, according to this article:
My question is: is the act of "purchasing" these legal drugs still an offense? The measure says:
A "yes" vote supported making personal non-commercial possession of a controlled substance no more than a Class E violation (max fine of $100 fine) and establishing a drug addiction treatment and recovery program funded in part by the state's marijuana tax revenue and state prison savings.
It says "possession" is now a minor violation. But what if you get caught in the act of "purchasing" it? Is that still a crime? I couldn't find any mention of it.
