Issue 1 would end imprisonment for most drug possession arrests
Harm Reduction Ohio made four videos in support of Issue 1. This citizens’ initiative would end imprisonment for drug possession (except in the largest amounts) and direct the savings to treatment. Penalties for selling drugs would not be affected.
Harm Reduction Ohio believes criminalizing drug use and stigmatizing users as felons is devastating to the lives of individuals and families throughout Ohio, especially in communities of color.
These four videos show drug users in non-stereotyped ways and reflect the perspectives of parents, children and families.
