Quick Voter Guide

March 2024 Primary Election


No on Prop F

At the core of this debate is the treatment of addiction. The medical community widely recognizes addiction as a complex brain disorder, not a moral failing. Effective management of addiction typically requires a nuanced blend of medical, psychological and social support. By mandating treatment as a condition for welfare, Prop. F oversimplifies this complex issue at the expense of people who need care, not punishment. The requirement to accept treatment or face the loss of benefits places undue pressure on individuals who are not ready for treatment, which often leads to less effective outcomes or avoidance of support systems altogether.
