    In November 2020, Oregon voters approved Measure 110, essentially decriminalizing possession of small amounts of drugs — from heroin to cocaine to opioid pills. Instead of criminal penalties, the law calls for treatment centers to be set up all over the state, so addiction could be treated as a health care issue, not a law enforcement issue. The problem, law enforcement says, is that has led to a huge increase in the amount of drugs on the streets — and now, an increase in crime. . . . "It's everywhere. It's everybody we contact. I have a couple cases that...

She went to...

    Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon is under fire after distributing material instructing children to “tuck” their genitals and put “your testicles inside your body.” Tucking is not just for males, the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital assures in its instructional guide that. “Tucking is moving the penis, testicles, or both out of the way. This makes the genital area look smoother and flatter,” the document notes. “Tucking can reduce any concerns you have about your body, how your clothes fit and how safe you feel in public. People of all genders can tuck.” The guide includes a disclaimer, warning readers that...
