Central Conference of American Rabbis

Resolutions Adopted by the CCAR

The resolutions adopted by the Central Conference of American Rabbis represent the evolutionary
changes in its stands on many political, social, economic, and humanitarian issues. Since its
inception in 1889, the Conference has not hesitated to speak out on issues of the widest scope and
significance, always seeking to elucidate current problems according to its interpretation of the
voice of prophetic Judaism.

Resolutions adopted between 1973 and the present are available verbatim and are indexed by
complete title. Resolutions adopted prior to 1973 (as well as those adopted in 1973-74) are
available in digest form as found in the document Resolutions of the Central Conference (see its
preface) and are indexed by topic.

Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Drug Trade and Drug Legislation

Adopted by the 104th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
Montreal, Quebec, June 1993

WHEREAS, the overall situation regarding the use of drugs in our society and the crime and misery that accompanies it has continued to deteriorate for several decades, and

WHEREAS, our society has continued to attempt, at enormous financial cost, to resolve drug abuse problems through the criminal justice system, with the accompanying increases of prisons and numbers of inmates, and

WHEREAS, the huge untaxed revenues generated by the illicit drug trade are undermining legitimate governments world-wide, and

WHEREAS, the present system has spawned a cycle of hostility by the incarceration of disproportionate numbers of African-Americans, Hispanics, and other minority groups, and

WHEREAS, the number of people who have contracted AIDS, hepatitis, and other diseases from contaminated hypodermic needles is epidemic under our present system, and

WHEREAS, in our society's zeal to pursue our criminal approach, legitimate medical uses for the relief of pain and suffering of patients have been suppressed.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that our society must recognize drug use and abuse as the medical and social problems that they are and that they must be treated with medical and social solutions, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that an objective commission be immediately empowered by Congress to recommend revision of the drug laws of the United States in order to reduce the harm our current policies are causing.

How do we show our support for this? Is there any point to writing our congresspeople or is there something else we can/should do?
