Despite over 60% voter approval for marijuana legalization in Virginia, the legislature has remained adamant in shooting down even the most basic decriminalization measures. In October 2015 the Drug Policy Alliance put out a report highlighting Virginia as one of the few states that have significantly increased marijuana possession arrests post-2000. Not only that, but the arrests have disproportionally increased for Virginians of color.

A coalition of SSDP chapters in Virginia are working to ReVAMP the draconian, harshly punitive drug policies still clogging up our criminal justice system. Together we can show our elected officials what Virginians have already loudly voiced.
