Rebekah Kennedy on Drugs

Green Senate challenger


Punishment rather than drug treatment does not work

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Drug use is immoral: enforce laws against it?"

A: Do Not Support. Public policy on drugs should be based upon sound public health research and should have the goal of improving public health. Our current system of treating all traditionally illegal drugs as equally harmful and of focusing on punishment rather than treatment is not working and is only making life worse for the people it should be aimed at helping.
