  1. The fentanyl pills were probably headed for the land of decriminalized drugs. Of course, all who voted for it are probably potheads and they don’t know what they’re doing most of the time. The taxpayers will get the bill for all who want to enter into rehab but why do that, there is nothing wrong with doing drugs now. I think Oregon is just looking for more tourist business. I hope this doesn’t spread as the call for pot has.
