The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office will be participating in enhanced DUII enforcement during the Fourth of July holiday. Independence Day is one of our nation's most celebrated holidays. With plenty of backyard barbecues, picnics, and pool parties to attend, millions of Americans head out onto the roads to take part in summer festivities. Unfortunately, this celebratory holiday often turns deadly for those who decide to drink and drive. In fact, in 2015, 10,265 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes--almost a third of all traffic fatalities nationwide. To put it in perspective, that's equal to about 20 jumbo jets crashing, with no survivors. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration want to remind you that any time you drive under the influence of alcohol, you put everyone in danger, including yourself. Help us spread this lifesaving message: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. During the Fourth of July holiday period, which starts at 6 p.m. Friday, June 30, and ends on Wednesday, July 5 at 5:59 a.m., make sure you plan for a safe weekend of festivities. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office will be adding enha ...

As they were concluding these tests on 23-year-old Yash Desai, of Portland, a vehicle crashed into the back of a deputy's patrol car, causing a chain reaction crash that left four vehicles -- including two patrol cars -- damaged.

Oregonians smoke weed at a higher rate than Washington residents, and have large concentrations of pot shops in the biggest cities—especially Portland. A state economist says strong cannabis sales indicate that Oregon could collect $156 million in marijuana taxes over the next two years—but cautions that supply shortages and the fluctuating cost of weed make those projections "highly uncertain." The Oregon Office of Economic Analysis on Wednesday released its forecast for Oregon's recreational cannabis revenue. In the first year of recreational cannabis sales, Oregon closely tracks Colorado and outpaces the state of Washington when sales are adjusted for population size. The forecast, written by state economist Josh Lehner, lists four reasons for why Oregon has been able to sell marijuana at this rate: Oregonians smoke pot at a higher rate than Washington residents, burden pot with less taxes, sell that cheap weed to Washington consumers, and have large concentrations of pot shops in the biggest cities—especially Portland. Lehner also believes sales are "poised for strong growth," but not quite as strong as Colorado's second and third years. "Oregon's first year clos ...
