Ypsilanti City Council Meeting: January 9th @ 6pm

Help us support Ypsilanti in decriminalizing entheogens. Ypsi is protected by Washtenaw County's Entheogenic Plant Policy. But a new ordinance being discussed in Ypsilanti city council will protect plant medicines even further, and set a precedent for future cities to adopt.  There will be a time in the meeting for public comment.

Click below for meetings links, and an email template to send to city council members. You don't have to be an Ypsilanti resident to participate; any support from the community is incredibly valuable!

    "I support the decriminalization of entheogenic plants. I believe the War on Drugs has been an abject failure, and I see no reason to criminalize–or prosecute–people for their use of such plants. That was my position before the Ann Arbor City Council resolution, and it’s true with even greater force afterwards.
    The truth of the matter is, the vast majority of people who engage in substance use are able to do so without criminal consequences. But for an unlucky few, their decision to use substances results in harsh, life-changing penalties. The War on Drugs has thus created a cruel roulette wheel of sorts. And it’s a weighted wheel, as the data clearly shows that Black people and people of color are far more likely to face criminal consequences related to drug use than white people.
    The Ann Arbor City Council resolution of course applies only in Ann Arbor. But, consistent with the resolution, I do not plan to prosecute the use or possession of entheogenic plants in any other part of the county."
– Eli Savit, Washtenaw County Prosecutor
