Reject Drug War-Era Policies
Lessons from more than 50 years of the drug war have taught us that drug penalties don't deter drug use or sale. They don't end overdose deaths. The only thing that they've ever done is to drive arrests and mass incarceration, particularly among Black and brown communities. Now is the time for our state to build on its past successes by reinvesting in the communities most harmed by criminalization and shifting to a public health approach to drugs.
