“Mothers throughout history have come forward for the sake of their children. We’re coming forth saying that the drug war has been more damaging to our families than the drugs themselves.” – Gretchen Burns Bergman, executive director of PATH
Moms United is a growing movement to stop the violence, mass incarceration and overdose deaths that are the result of deeply flawed, punitive and discriminatory drug policies. The group is advocating for therapeutic drug policies, opting to treat drug use and abuse as a health issue rather than a criminal issue.
For far too long special interests, like big pharma and private prisons, have been forcing senseless drug policies upon much of the world. It’s only a matter of time until the anti-prohibition movement gains the momentum needed to finally bring some common sense back into our policy making decisions.
And when that happens, a grave injustice will be cleansed from our burgeoning global society.
