Vice: What All the New Drug Policies Mean For You, Personally

Summary: VICE speaks with drug policy experts Ismail L. Ali, J.D., of MAPS and Matt Sutton of the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) to explore what the passing of each new drug policy initiative during the 2020 U.S. election looks like in practice and how they each compare. “It’s actually quite a big deal, even if you’re just talking about psychedelics,” explains Ali regarding the passing of Oregon’s Measure 110 that decriminalizes personal possession of all illicit drugs. “Decriminalization is definitely not the same thing as legalization,” says Sutton as he explains the legalities of the new policies.
