Hello All... My question is hopefully simple. This has been in the back of my mind ever since I started considering getting a Oregon out of state CHL. What exactly is a " drug diversion " when discussing ORS 166.291 ? Relevant part ( I understand the exceptions ) : --------- Has not been convicted of an offense involving controlled substances or participated in a court-supervised drug diversion program, except this disability does not operate to exclude a person if: (A) The person has been convicted only once of violating ORS 475.864 (Unlawful possession of marijuana) (3) and has not completed a court-supervised drug diversion program under ORS 135.907 (Notification of availability of diversion); or --------- California native here so I only know how it's done down south. A drug diversion essentially is the result of a controlled substance charge, where if you are charged with a controlled substance charge you may be eligible to have the charges dropped after completing essentially a court ordered re-hab program. The CA penal code is typically PC 1000 , Prop 36 , OR California Drug Court. Is this the same for Oregon ? How about a Oregon DUII diversion ? I realize this isn't a prohibiting offense typically as people with DUII convictions are still eligible, but isn't a DUII diversion a form of " drug diversion " ? If you read further into 166.291 there seems to be a definition here ? ; The person has completed a court-supervised drug diversion program under ORS 135.907 (Notification of availability of diversion) ? If this is whats considered a " drug diversion " for the propose of 166.291 how does it apply to out of state diversions or a program like Multnomah's STOP ? If anybody has any idea I would love to know, definately not a lawyer here just trying to understand. I sent a couple emails out to lawyers in the Portland metro area. Out of two responses, neither knew believe it or not. And seriously. We really need reciprocity between OR and WA.
