As their own angry left-wingers take to the streets to accost even other left-wingers, Oregon has taken yet another step into Looneyville with a measure to decriminalize hard drugs like cocaine, meth and heroin.

Because that's exactly what cities like Portland need, on top of all the violence, looting and homelessness - more drugs.

As of right now with about 70 percent of the votes counted, 60 percent of Oregon voters supported Measure 110, which decriminalizes possession of small, “non-commercial” amounts of drugs like heroin, methamphetamines and cocaine, making it punishable by no more than a $100 fine.

Oh! And if you don’t want to cough up a Benjamin, you can just complete a health assessment for drug addiction instead of paying the fee.

The Drug Policy Alliance, which pushed for the measure, praised the new rule that will allow people to walk around the city with a pocket full of coke.

"Oregon made history tonight by becoming the first state to decriminalize drug possession! Our c4 @DrugPolicyAct led this campaign with @voteYESon110 to make this visionary initiative a reality! This victory is truly transformative," they tweeted Tuesday.
