Tell your legislator: treat possession as a misdemeanor

Act Now

While Kentucky saw a decrease in overdose deaths in 2018, rates climbed in 2019 and increased a staggering 57% in 2020. These increases have affected families in every single community, but overdose rates among Black Kentuckians have risen even more.

Addressing this public health crisis with incarceration fuels incarceration rates, especially for Kentuckians of color.

As your constituent, I ask you to support making possession a misdemeanor and eliminating barriers to treatment.
