Washington Supreme Court strikes down felony drug possession law; Seattle PD will not arrest for possession
"Of illegal Drugs. This comes after the state Supreme Court ruled this week. That part of the felony drug possession law was unconstitutional is comes as a big surprise for a lot of people, including comas, Matt Markovich in the shadow of the King County courthouse just feet away from the sheriff's Headquarters. Users are happy collision be arresting us for drew position anyway. He's the guy directly affected by the court's ruling. Things would be relaxed a little bit. No. Yeah, I mean, you know we won't be so panicked because there's no fear of being arrested for possession of narcotics right now. After the state Supreme Court ruled the state's possession law unconscious. Tutu, sh inal Anyone who is serving a sentence for drug possession should be released. Tonight tomorrow as soon as possible, says an attorney who asked the court to strike down the long but it's also gonna let a lot of dangerous Criminals and felons out on the street, says the King County Council member and former prosecutor who worked with the Supreme Court. But people who are sitting in jail right now say, Hey, my whole convictions based on something that's unconstitutional. It's now a race against time Arrested or convicted drug users, with their attorneys moving quickly to get drug cases thrown out Many hundreds of prosecutions being thrown out even convictions potentially being thrown out, and that just creates chaos, But the Legislature can fix this by adding one word. Two to the statute that word is knowingly which as intent to possess into the law, something the court found absent. Two state senators just introduced a bill that does just that. Currently right now you could have controlled substances and not get arrested. It's kind of crazy. But even with a quick fix, attorneys could argue their clients were arrested or convicted. Under a law that was found unconstitutional. They don't want to doing drugs around here, and he passed that bubble crack pipe arrow on pipe, you know, fix would be immediate assumes the governor signs it. But right now, there's a push by many legislators. To decriminalize illegal drugs in Washington in Seattle, met Markovich come on. Ian's new developments were hearing the death of
Washington court strikes down law that made unintentional possession of drugs a crime
"That the state Supreme Court has now struck down the law that makes the unintentional possession of drugs. Ah, felony in Washington. Why did the court make this decision And what will the impacts be? We wanted to bring in a legal expert and joining us now is Debra Erin's, A criminal law professor at Seattle University. Good morning, Deborah. Good morning. So when you heard and started reading through the decision yesterday it was a split decision. What was your immediate reaction? And how did you read it? Well, honestly, I was fairly surprised primarily because and anyone who resisted the decision will say this. The Supreme Court in the state has twice looked at the exact same statute. And has determined the book. It's a strict liability statute. That's what the state Legislature seems to want and has upheld the statute. In the past. It was somewhat surprising that now a majority of the state Supreme Court justices find that it violates both the state and federal constitution. So can you walk us through what the next step is? We are now you know, Yesterday we found out about it this morning. We're talking about it. What is the next step in all of this? Well, every other state in the country has something similar to you. Our state drugs statute, and every other state either has written into its statute or its state courts have determined that the state Legislature must have meant to write into its statues. I'm sort of intention that the individual has to have to possess the drugs that they would have to know. Do they have it that they would have to intend to possess that? And so we were actually an outlier. We're the only state that actually did hold people strictly liable for any drugs that were in their possession. So even if you had no idea you had a drugs on your person or in a backpack that someone it handed to you We were the last state where that could still get you convicted of a drug felony. And so the state Legislature at this point with simply need to go ahead. We dropped the statute and put in some sort of mental state of the state needs to prove at trial. Every criminal statute usually includes a thing a person has to do. And then what has to be killing on in their head at the same time, so the what the person has to do is already in The old statute. Now they just need to add in what needs to be going on in the person's head and would probably be language to be effective. The person would need to know that the substance they had was a drug or that they were in possession of drugs. Is Debra. As you pointed out, we were the outlier. And then now we're the outlier again because now we have no statute, right? It's like we went from one extreme to the other extreme. On. I know that for people who supported this decision over supporting this decision, they say, Well, it's going toe even it out and make it so that Minority populations aren't going to be disproportionately affected by this, but this also has an effect. Now we're police departments are saying, Well, we're just not going to even Make arrests for drug possession at all. Which then means that other crimes I mean, sometimes drug possession is the like the entry into What could be ah other crimes. If that makes sense. So it's almost like handcuffing, handcuffing prosecutors and police. Right. And you know, we are in a sense it out later, at least today, right? Although Oregon in the Hall, of course, be criminalized drug possession in that state, which is now operational is lost. So it is not that is now affirmatively legal to possess, said elicit drug in the state of Oregon. But it's no longer a crime. You'll pay a fine and it's basically now a civil infraction. So our neighbors to the South also are kind of in this position, but no, I I understand that concern. Absolutely. The truth is that if someone is engaging in a possession of a drug, and then they're also doing some other sort of harm. Obviously, the police will still have a lot of food to make an arrest and certainly Groups are often very concerned that the reason that someone comes to the attention of police is they may be used drug possession as an excuse to interact with individuals who otherwise are causing other social firms. And so I think that's why some civil overuse groups are excited, at least for a period of time. Right now, please. Won't have that of a hook to be able to stop and it will be more difficult for police to go ahead and stop or arrest people based on low level drug offenses. Okay, So as of right now, though, if the Legislature doesn't act this session Could someone have a larger amount of drugs? That would clearly not be just for personal use? But say, Hey, I had no clue that I had this and get away with it. He had no. The state Supreme Court was pretty clear. I think in the decision that we do have statues that penalized distribution or possession with intent to distribute ER, trafficking drugs, and those that she's already do require the person toe have a mental state with respect to the drugs, so there are still ways to arrest and prosecute people. Larger quantities of illicit substances where you really do you think that they're selling or trafficking? It's just people who have drugs that generally would be for personal use that for right now, there isn't a statute criminalizing that behavior. This is the voice of Deborah Errands. She is the criminal law professor at Seattle University. As she joins the gene nurses show last question for you as the as the we We wait for the next decision to be made. What does this mean? For someone that is currently incarcerated that has been arrested or charged with some of the things that now seem to be going away? Can you talk about that? Yeah, absolutely. If the only thing that you have pending is a possession of a drug charge at this point, there's no statute to prosecute you under so people who either are pre conviction or who have been convicted and have not kind of exhausted their initial sort of appeal. So you get convicted. Maybe you appeal to the appellate court. People who are in that position should at this point no longer have drug charges pending or drug convictions. It's a little more complicated for people who have been convicted and who have exhausted their appeals, which is going to be a lot of folks who might be incarcerated. On drug possession charges, the state Supreme Court probably would need to separately. Consider whether or not this new rule that they have announced is going to be retroactive. Very well may be Um, but they probably will have to issue a separate decision explaining whether or not the world's retroactive, this particular litigant Woz directly appealing her conviction, so she's in a different position than someone who's been convicted, already gone to prison and already exhausted their

Decriminalizing The War On Drugs
"In the summer of nineteen seventy one president richard. Nixon declared a so-called. You're on drugs. But i consider this problem so urgent. I also found that it was scattered so much throughout the government with so much conflict without coordination that it had to be brought into the white house so that we have not only the responsibility but the authorities to see that we wages defensive effectively an coordinated way the goal was to curb the use of illicit substances by levying increased. Police presence classifying a number of drugs at the federal level and by making longer prison sentences. Mandatory for the use and distribution of narcotics nearing the fiftieth anniversary of that decision. The war on drugs is still very much alive. Millions of people have been incarcerated from windows policing and the advent of stop and frisk to no knock warrants and the militarization of local police departments. All of this born from the so called war on drugs and all have been used primarily target communities of color advocates for reform have long that punitive policies have not only failed to reduce the flow of drugs across the country but also strengthen illicit drug markets creating risky and unhealthy conditions for people who choose to use drugs. Meanwhile more than seventy thousand people died last year alone as a result of drug. Overdoses is clearly failing in the war on drugs and advocates. Say it's because we've gone about it completely. The wrong way by focusing on the criminal element of drug use instead of seeing it through the lens of healthcare access and social justice to talk about this issue. We're joined by muddied sep it is. Who's the director of the national affairs at the drug policy alliance in washington d. c. leads the organization's federal work to end the war on drugs. Mighty snap is welcome to letting you. usa inc you. I'm so excited to be here with you today. So recently a lot has been happening with drug decriminalization but before we get into that. Let's take a few steps back and you know. Set the picture for how we got to this place and this is a place where for example someone could be caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and they could be sentenced to spend the rest of their life in prison in some parts of the country. Still yes sadly. That's the case. Drug enforcement continues to be a driver of mass incarceration. In fact one person is arrested every twenty three seconds for simple drug possession so it continues to be a a big feeder into not just the criminal justice system but you have to think of all of the collateral consequences for instance a conviction can make it harder for you to put your life back on track to go to school to obtain even get a job in the first place to keep a roof over your head to feed your family so it continues to be something. That is a huge detriment. In a lot of people's lives many drugs that are illegal today such as marijuana opium coca psychedelics if unused for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes but we also know that this country has a long history of pech waiting racialized drug war. I think something that a lot of people might not know is that the first anti-drug laws in the united states were actually built specifically to criminalize people of color. Starting with the eighteen seventies we saw laws targeting chinese immigrants in california. This is the first time we saw anti opium laws pop around. Are you saying that basically opium was around and used once you had the arrival of men and women from china who were actually working on the railroad that that's when it becomes a problem. Yeah so what. We started to see around. the eighteen. Hundreds was that anti drug laws started to pop up. Civically created to target certain communities of color and the eighteen seventies saw the rise of the first anti-drug laws in those drugs were anti opium laws that were targeted at chinese immigrants. Soon after that in the nineteen hundreds in the south we saw that mccain became illegal in that was related target african american men Who were using the substance and then of course in the nineteen thirties. That mexican mexican americans were criminalised for marijuana use. Of course you know when we talk about. Marijuana can't ignore the fact that marijuana itself was a term that was developed to criminalise mexican americans and mexicans who were who were using the plant and this happened with the first individual who was responsible for drug enforcement in the us but these were all intentional decisions by the government to criminalise communities of color to really dejected. People who were not wanted in the society and you know unfortunately those policy decisions still play out today because drug use continues to be something that there is a lot of hysteria around and people of color continued to be disproportionately enforced for drug use and drug activity even though all the data tells us that black and brown individuals use drugs at similar rates and sometimes even lower rates than white individuals.

I was shooting heroin and other substances saw and renew sleep and of course that brought a lot of legal problems and now jail lots of treatment and i was raised in texas dallas texas and i went through fourteen different treatment programs throughout my life and continued really struggle in and out of jail in and out of programs so the age of thirty actually twenty nine years old is when i finally got it together and for me rui. I realized later that i needed. I needed more than just. The normal substance use treatment. I needed a life. Overall are some point hind landed in. Hawaii ended up in trouble ear in jail and eventually ended up in the village. And i kind of took to habilitates philosophy like a duck. They helped me find a passion. Nail figure out who i was and on the final i had a knack for helping other people. They put me through a lot of training. They sent me to school to learn about a substance use treatment and administration and things like that and eventually i became the program. Director for tat. And i did that job for about sixteen years. I was very blessed. I was trained but actually the last person that was trained by the people who founded the program unfortunately our founder any marino us. Since passed away.

Tell me a little bit about the fourteen times of trying treatment so here you were addicted pretty early. I guess you know. I think he said thirteen or fourteen years old drugs. By the time. I was sixteen hours using obviously right so using some really hardcore drugs at a very young age very young age of development and you into fourteen different treatment centers. I mean. that's really like someone who is trying to get help ya. Well i think to me jimmy rule honest. I think my family wanted me to get a lot more than i really. Did you know. I had a lot of people i mean i have some childhood traumas that were unresolved goes very angry. Disenfranchised with life you know the family was dysfunctional. Common themes wait was substance abuse on trying and trying really. It was when i got to be a little bit older and how to jail and withdraw in jail and watching life pass me by and to get a little bit more motivated like i need to give together. This is not fine. I was actually of a lengthy prison sentence that i was facing drums now for for drug for drug possession. That's what prompted me to trying. Really dig down deep and try and overcome all these issues until you know certainly wasn't fixed a thirty day curated took me a few years therapy Few years of mentorship but there was a it. Sounds like there was a change in you where you said. Okay i gotta dig deeper here. Something's gotta be different. I can't keep going like this really crazy to say i was on about ninety milligrams of methadone back in the nineties. And i i went to jail overstated. They didn't give me the doses. Methadone so i ended up withdrawing older. Eat from both methadone in heroin on the floor. Wow jail and it was a newsroom experience. I mean it a really miserable experience you know. It was in that fog than i decided. you know. this isn't fun anymore. And you know i mean most of the reason that i was using drugs to escape age of of that i created for myself really but it was a coping skill. Drug use was a coping skill. Not not a very resourceful coping skill but it was yulong and you know the payable. That really made me decide that. I needed to try something else. I was very blessed. Because i i was in jail here in hawaii. And there's a program here old milita which is known as the long hard core long-term aren't or program and the you know. The word on the street was that if you really wanna get your act together. That's the place that you go. And i didn't have anything to lose. That's for sure. So i reached out to them in jail and call them. They came to visit me in jail in a few weeks later. They got me into the program so they are able to to take you in and you really wanted to to get some treatment. It sounds like you were kind of ready at that point. Yeah find the right place in the right place mentally and emotionally that i knew something had to change about jails institutions and death while i was facing all that and it became very apparent to me that the gig was up and it was time to make a change are the only alternative was either gonna die or overdose.

How to Abolish Prison Like a Feminist
"Kristen in early June you me and seemingly everyone in our social media feeds started talking about two big barns ideas that most of us had never even thought about before, and they are defunding the police and abolishing prisons. Yeah, those two ideas are intertwined, but not synonymous so defunding the police means diverting funds away from law enforcement and reinvesting them into public services like healthcare education, social work, abolishing prisons, which were focusing on today kind of means what? What it sounds like eliminating the prison system altogether, yeah, and Kristen our unladylike wheels really got turning when we noticed how all these brand new conversations about policing and prisons have also stoked old fears about who'll protect women like without police who will keep us safe from rapists and predators and without prison. How can the Harvey Weinstein's of the world ever be held accountable today's guest prison abolitionist? My car gets asked these kinds of questions a lot. You know you want to say like okay, but what about rape his? Like, what do we do with people who have actually tremendous violence, and if you don't believe that this is the justice system, if you don't believe that it holds people accountable and. Doesn't actually change the structures that led to that violence at all. then. You can't embrace it for anybody, so it's not about being easy on people. It's not about like we just have to be nice to reverse like. It's not about that. It's about the fact that this system doesn't actually do justice. My is the editor in chief of the social justice new site truth out CO author of the new book prison by any other name, and she spent the past fifteen years or ising. And speaking out about prison abolition, and because these big abolitionist ideas are new to a lot of us. We're GONNA take this episode and the next to reconsider what justice for sexual and gender based violence looks like beyond calling the cops and putting people behind bars so today my is going to share her very personal inspiration behind her prison. Politics explained to us why policing and prisons don't make women safer and connect the dots between feminism and abolition For me, actually feminism and prison abolition have always been very deeply connected. Just to be clear I was a feminist way before it ever heard of prison. Abolition I was one of those middle schoolers with reproductive rights stickers on my bedroom wall. When my first started reporting on mass incarceration in prison conditions in the early two thousands, a feminist mentor open her eyes to the abuse. Female inmates face in particular, but she wasn't fully thinking in terms of abolition yet. Then, her activism had some in two thousand five. Her teenage sister was arrested at school for drug possession and wound up in juvenile jail. This is what folks mean. When they talk about the school to prison pipeline, it describes how public school punishment funnels kids into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. When my sister got out of juvenile, jail. She kind of had this outlook on life was just completely depleted. She felt like you know you're in this institution. Where you're reduced to a number and you're told this is your life like she always talks about how she was told by guards repeatedly. Oh, I'm going to see you back here. And enduring these jokes about how you're going to graduate to adult prison like that's that's your future. It did become her future. Maya sister became addicted to heroin pretty soon after her release from juvenile detention, and over the next fifteen years she cycled in and out of jails and prisons. Every time it was drug related. So, for example she would get out of jail or get out of prison, and then she would be placed in mandatory treatment and told you have to abide by these conditions. You have to be completely abstinent from drugs and alcohol. You have to obey this curfew. You have to not associate with certain people. All of these conditions that very often people are given when they're on probation or mandatory treatment. And she would inevitably not able to do that. Because part of the nature of addiction is actually relaxing, thing you know, and then she would be shuttled right back into jail right back into prison or some other oppressive institutions.
