Troubling legislation would direct the president to renegotiate the Chemical Weapons Convention and classify fentanyl as a chemical weapon.
If this bill passes, it could help push the "war on drugs" into overdrive while feeding a right-wing effort to land us into open conflict with Mexico — and we just got news it could be up for a vote in the House soon.
U.S. policies, both foreign and domestic, have deepened violence and corruption across multiple continents and vilified and criminalized immigrants and communities of color — all while doing shockingly little to address substance abuse or support people struggling with addiction.
Communities struggling in the face of violence and addiction don’t need a rinse and repeat of bad drug policy. We all deserve better than a Congress that would slow-walk us to an unnecessary and completely avoidable war. That’s why we’re calling on you to help stop this bad bill in its tracks today.
