A "yes" vote supports making changes to Proposition 47 approved in 2014, including:

  • requiring courts to warn individuals convicted of distributing illegal drugs of their potential future criminal liability if they distribute deadly drugs like fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine; and
  • increasing sentences for theft based on the value of the property stolen. 

A "no" vote opposes this initiative that makes changes to Proposition 47 (2014), thereby maintaining certain drug and theft crimes as misdemeanors.
