The drug war lost BIG on Election Day. Across the nation, people came out against the War on Drugs and in support of sensible, humane drug policy. Oregon became the first state in the nation to decriminalize all drug possession. Another world is possible. Sensible drug policy is possible. In New Jersey, voters legalized recreational marijuana after a years-long campaign by advocates & residents harmed by the drug war. Our work is far from over. New Jersey must implement marijuana legalization policies that benefit the people and communities most harmed by the drug war—especially our Black and Latinx communities. We must follow Oregoon’s lead and take a public health approach to all drug use.
