The Health Policy Institute of Ohio (HPIO) has released a resource page with information on Issue 1, the upcoming statewide ballot initiative.
On Tuesday, November 6, Ohioans will vote on Issue 1 – a ballot initiative that would create a constitutional amendment to implement criminal justice reforms and redirect funding currently used in the criminal justice system to community addiction treatment.
The resource page includes information on the challenges Ohio is facing related to addiction treatment and prison costs, background information on the ballot initiative, statements from organizations who have taken a position on Issue 1, and a collection of research and analysis on drug treatment and criminal justice reform.
The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians’ Board of Directors declined to take a position on Issue 1.
