The overdose crisis has killed more people in BC than the COVID-19 pandemic.1

Our outdated drug laws make simple possession a crime, fuel stigma and impede access to harm reduction and health services. By decriminalizing drug possession we can treat the overdose crisis for what it is — a public health emergency. 

People are dying every day, and despite medical experts like Dr. Bonnie Henry, front-line advocates and even the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police calling on governments to decriminalize drug possession the BC government is dragging their heels. 2,3

If we can ramp up the pressure on Premier Horgan with a massive petition calling on him to listen to expert advice, we could convince him to decriminalize drug possession across the province. It could help save thousands of lives. 

Premier John Horgan:

Listen to expert advice and formally request a criminal code exemption from the federal government to decriminalize drug possession for personal use in BC.
