Win Without War

Congress: Don’t let the "war on drugs" become an all-out war on Mexico

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.

To members of the 118th Congress:

I urge you to oppose H.R. 3205, which would add fentanyl to the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Legislation like this only sets the stage to escalate the U.S.-led war on drugs — and brings us closer to launching a disastrous military action in Mexico. If you want to build true security, I urge you to work instead on enacting policies that will actually address substance abuse and support people struggling with addiction.
