Howie Hawkins on Drugs

Green Challenger

 


Drug abuse treatment should be available on demand

Our campaign is about ending the war on drugs and mass incarceration. We call for the legalization of marijuana and the decriminalization of other drugs on the model of the Portuguese harm reduction policies. Drug abuse is a health problem, not a criminal problem. Criminalizing opioids contributes to the carnage of fatal overdoses. Addicts need help, not incarceration. Drug abuse treatment should be available on demand.

Big Pharma pushes addictive opioids for profit

Big pharma has failed to serve the public interest as a profit-oriented industry. It has gouged consumers with monopolistic pricing. Its business model is centered on pushing addictive opioids and patent-protected medicines for chronic conditions. It has abandoned research and development of less lucrative short-term treatments, notably for antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

End the “War on Drugs”

End the “War on Drugs”. Drug abuse is a health problem, not a criminal problem. Drug prohibition increases crime by creating a violent underground drug economy. Legalize, regulate, and tax drugs.
