Endorsements and Positions

In order to qualify for endorsement, an initiative, bill, or resolution at the local, state, or federal level must achieve goals supported by the mission of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, must not threaten sensible drug policy for students or young people, and demonstrate an acceptable level of community support. Additionally, Students for Sensible Drug Policy will consider the viability of the initiative, bill, or resolution, interest and support among members, the impact endorsement may have on SSDP, the impact SSDP’s endorsement may have on the bill, and other relevant criteria. An endorsement may be full or conditional and may include any activities in support of the measure SSDP believes are appropriate.

If you have an endorsement request you would like SSDP to consider, please email policy@ssdp.org.
