We need a better approach.

The War on Drugs is still ruining lives in Washington State. Criminalization creates barriers to jobs, housing, and the help people with substance use disorders need. After decades of damage, it's time to stop hurting our communities and start rebuilding them. Commit to Change WA calls for us to rethink our approach to drug use and take a decisive step in a new direction. Together, we can replace the failed policies of the past with new, evidence-based approaches that support recovery and build pathways to restoration.
