Note from the ED 📝

If you thought 2021 was an eventful year for drug policy, 2022 is going to be even better! We have a multitude of campaigns launching this year including a statewide ballot measure in Michigan, HBCU outreach in partnership with SMART, and efforts to ensure harm reduction programs are available at every university in the country. This is in addition to our 10+ municipal level decrim all campaigns and a cannabis career readiness tour powered by Weedmaps!

2022 will mark a return to a clear and deliberate refocus on policy and outreach. We are excited to work with all of you as we build SSDP into the force we need to end the War on Drugs.
