Politician Beto O’Rourke is producing headlines for his current drug program. The bottom line: he seeks to finish the stigma and discrimination about substance use.
When asked especially about the RAVE Act, a query posed by Jeffrey Cook, here’s what he had to say:
We’ve got to get rid of the stigma about obtaining enable for these who have a substance use disorder. We’ve lost the lives of hundreds of thousands of our fellow Americans more than the final decade from drug overdose deaths — opioids getting the top result in.
The present language of the RAVE Act has undoubtedly developed a risky scenario in discouraging EDM show/festival organizers from implementing particular security measures to safeguard revelers. It is a thing that has followed fellow presidential candidate Joe Biden about for almost the final two decades.
From Beto’s point of view, any laws on the books that protect against a person from coming forward for enable want to be repealed. Beto’s program can be study right here.
Also, see Amend the RAVE Act, which shares the similar stance that “drug policy should really not endanger public security.”
