Comments on H 406

Chris Mecham wrote 1 week ago

It is too blunt of an instrument. The wrong people will be adversely affected and additional litigation costs will skyrocket. I AM in favor of adding fentanyl to the list of substances which may cary a sentence of up to life in prison. I just think judges should decide that. If a judge isn’t making decisions that reflect our values he can always be voted out. I was addicted to drugs and I got sober. I’ve been sober for 7 continuous years thanks to the ADA County Treatment Courts. I fines and fees. I paid my restitution. I did well in excess of 100 hours of community service. I did all that while paying income taxes. Now I own real estate again. I house people in similar situations as my own. The investment in treatment was much lower than the cost of putting me in prison for 3 years. I know treatment works. Revise this law to more accurately reflect what happens to people who use drugs. Trafficking should mean that you are bringing it into the state. If you’re in Oregon and you. Ring a counterfeit pill into Idaho, that should be trafficking.
