ADAMHS Position State Issue 1

State Issue 1 is a constitutional amendment that proposes to reduce penalties for crimes of obtaining, possessing, and using illegal drugs 

Montgomery County ADAMHS firmly believes that non-violent individuals with a substance use disorder are better served through treatment instead of incarceration. This is particularly true for marginalized populations, who are over-represented in Ohio’s prisons and often go unserved.

We oppose this constitutional amendment because it does not address the problem as intended, nor does it allow for timely, critical updates when needed.

We implore the Ohio General Assembly to immediately bring together a bi-partisan coalition of concerned Ohioans to take action to address these issues through a legislative solution.
