Willamette Law Students for Sensible Drug Policy (Willamette LSSDP) became a recognized student organization in fall 2017. Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students dedicated to developing sound drug policy that addresses the impact of drug abuse on our communities. SSDP mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future. SSDP does this while fighting back against counterproductive policies — in particular, those that directly harm students and youth.
Prior Willamette SSDP members have testified in the legislature, campaigned for voter-led initiatives, helped create the Oregon State Bar Cannabis Section, and submitted amicus briefs in the United States Supreme Court. We have developed contacts in both the private and public sector and invite all students who want to join our fast-growing network.
