This year, for Mother’s Day, sign up in support of the “Moms United to End the War on Drugs Bill of Rights,” created by Moms United to End the War on Drugs. Do so in honor of your mother, or your children if you are a mother, or the countless mothers whose families have been impacted by the War on Drugs if you don’t know or have a relationship with your mother.
The Bill of Rights spells out twelve inalienable rights that all humans deserve, including the right to nurture their children and advocate for their care, the right to protect ones home and property from invasion and seizure by “drug warriors,” and the right to not have parental rights terminated over non-violent drug offenses, among others.
The primary focus of the “Mom’s Bill of Rights is the replacement of criminal prohibition policies with compassionate social policies that view addiction as an illness to be treated, rather than a personal decision for which one should be punished. Only by highlighting what a negative impact the War on Drugs has had on families across this country can the opinions of the family value voting block be swayed. As such, the “Moms United to End the War on Drugs Bill of Rights” has been endorsed by Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), the Drug Policy Alliance, Students for Sensible Drug Policy, among many other esteemed drug policy reform organizations across the board.
Even if your family hasn’t been directly impacted by the War on Drugs, please sign in support of the countless families that have been impacted by this failed policy.
