PORTLAND, Ore.—Former nurse practitioner Julie Ann DeMille, 60, of Portland, was sentenced today to 48 months in federal prison and three years’ supervised release for illegally distributing prescription opioids, filing a false tax return and lying to federal agents. “Our nation is drowning in substance abuse. We must wake up to this reality and stop pushing the reckless use of controlled substances. DeMille treated her nursing credentials like a license to deal opioids—a drug dealer masquerading as a medical professional. It’s hard to comprehend that in the midst of the deadliest drug crisis in history, DeMille risked the lives of hundreds to turn a profit,” said Billy J. Williams, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon. “Opioid abuse is devastating our communities and we must respond aggressively to stem the flow because every person lost in this crisis is one too many,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Weis. “This case is an excellent example of how the financial expertise of IRS-Criminal Investigation employees contributes to the federal law enforcement fabric,” said IRS-Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Justin Campbell. “IRS-Criminal Investigation ...

The Fifth Annual Veteran Benefit Expo, the state’s largest veteran resource event, comes to eastern Oregon for the first time this summer. The Expo, which has previously served veterans in Salem, Portland, Redmond and Medford, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at the Pendleton Convention Center.

The purpose of the event is to provide a one-stop shop for Oregon veterans of all eras and walks of life to learn about and access the full range of their earned benefits. The Expo offers resources from many different benefit areas, including health care, claims assistance, finance, home loans, long-term care, mental health, education, business and recreation.

The annual Expo is organized by the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs and is hosted in different locations throughout the state.

“One thing we hear from veterans year after year with this event is that they’re blown away by all the benefits and resources they never knew existed,” ODVA Director Kelly Fitzpatrick said. “Most come to the Expo with some idea of a few areas they want information in, but they always walk away with a whole lot more.”

This year’s event is being prese ...

While Oregon lawmakers consider several initiatives that would create legal protection for cannabis lounges, getting baked in public is still a no-go, and the state’s Indoor Clean Air Act prohibits smoking of any kind inside places of employment like bars, coffee shops, and hotels. This forces visitors staying in hotels or residents living in places that ban smoking to choose between breaking the law or taking on personal risk to consume legally purchased cannabis. The good news is that a number of social consumption workarounds are available. This means enjoying your green in a privately-zoned location is the name of the game. Oregon’s half-built cannabis infrastructure has inspired a growing set of entrepreneurs and activists to take matters into their own hands and develop a network of consumption sites for visitors and socially-inclined locals seeking a safe place to light up. Here’s our list of resources for anyone looking for a smoke spot away from home. Cannabis lounges operate as semi-private social clubs with varying approaches to membership enrollment. Some allow for walk-ins and others require an invite. Because they are privately zoned and owner-operated, l ...
