Issue 1

A proposed amendment to the state constitution to reduce the penalties for crimes of obtaining, possessing and using illegal drugs. It would make those offenses misdemeanors and prohibit the court from ordering people on probation for felonies to be sent to prison for non-criminal probation violations. The savings from a reduction in inmates would be spent on drug treatment and rehabilitation programs.
