Small Drug Possession Decriminalized in BC

Oregon has also decriminalized possession of small amounts of "illegal" drugs. So far, because mental health services are far from adequate and mental health response teams are scarce (there's a pilot project underway, but it only exists in one of Portland's 96 neighborhoods), the police appear to have just given up and do not respond to calls from residents about public drug use and the dangerous activities and trash that ensue.
