Media reports on UMaine survey on decriminalizing drug offenses- Harm Reduction Research & Results
Robert Glover and Karyn Sporer had a press conference Tuesday on their Harm Reduction Research and results. Their results were picked up by a number of media outlets:
BDN: https://www.bangordailynews.com/2022/09/27/news/bangor/maine-voters-decriminalize-low-level-drug-offenses (was also on the cover of the print copy yesterday)
In addition, the Portland Press Herald story was picked up by the Lewiston Sun Journal, the Kennebec Journal, and the national Yahoo News service. And they’ll have an op-ed piece to sustain the momentum in the KJ next week (and some of the orgs in the state have been organizing folks to write LTEs once the op-ed hits). They are really pleased that there’s been such buzz around this in Maine and hope it can move the policy needle.
