After 51 years since President Nixon declared the disastrous “war on drugs”, most Americans agree it's been a failure. We’re making historic headway to end it including the first-ever drug decriminalization bill introduced in Congress just a year ago.
The groundbreaking Drug Policy Reform Act (DPRA) will help dismantle the federal drug war through decriminalizing drugs and investing in health-based alternatives.
Drug criminalization is driving the overdose crisis and has made drug possession the most arrested offense in the country – ruining countless lives and preventing us from helping people by treating drug use as the health issue it is. Don’t let the drug war continue for another half a century: urge Congress to take the first step by supporting the DPRA to decriminalize drugs nationwide.
