    Oregon county decriminalizes heroin, meth, cocaine and shoplifting, among others | Raw Story

    Caught with small amounts of heroin, cocaine or methamphetamine? It's a ticket. So's a hit-and-run accident. Small-time shoplifting? You'll still get arrested, but it's still just a violation.

    For these and other lesser crimes, the district attorney will simply refuse to prosecute.

    "In a perfect world, you commit a crime, you'd be prosecuted for what it is," district attorney Mike Schrunk told The Oregonian. "[We] don't have unlimited funds."

    What a world, less then an ounce of weed is also a misdemeanor with a max fine of $100.

    They won't prosecute, but I have a feeling they will give free treatment, medical and housing.
