Drug Policy Alliance envisions a just society in which the use and regulation of drugs are grounded in science, compassion, health, and human rights and advances policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition.
Here, we provide a roadmap for the 2021 Administration to meaningfully address the need for drug policy reform. Specifically, this document provides recommendations for federal drug policy reform addressing criminal legal reform and ending the war on drugs, police reform, drug decriminalization, marijuana reform, and harm reduction and substance use disorder treatment. It also provides an outline of federal bills the Administration should support. These recommendations take into account the ongoing COVID-19 national emergency.
