WE ADVOCATE FOR SENSIBLE DRUG POLICY
We work on local, national and international levels to promote sensible drug policy, increase harm reduction awareness, and disseminate evidence-based educational resources.
It’s important we take smart first steps towards educating youth, starting with the science-based evidence. Drug education is empowerment.

Who We Are
A Collective of Students and Youth Across Canada
In 2016, we held our first roundtable, Youth Speak: Cannabis Legalization in the 21st Century, to ask young people what they thought about cannabis education for students and youth.
In 2018, we released our 95-page Sensible Cannabis Education: A Toolkit for Educating Youth and hope to gain funding to further workshop this resource to allow for more ways for young people to have their voices heard in relation to both laws and education that directly affect them. Sensible cannabis education is the first step – the first step away from criminalizing youth, and towards discussing sensible drug policy in relation to all regulations that affect young people and their families.
Why is the ‘debate’ around harm reduction not truly a debate?
What is being developed in Lethbridge?
What is Melanson’s support for Safe Injection Sites?
What is this call for decriminalization around the world emerging now?
According to the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, there is a united call on the part of the relevant authorities in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver for the decriminalization of hard drugs.
According to CBC News, there has been a call for the decriminalization of currently illicit drugs in Toronto.

The Board of Directors is an all-volunteer distributed team of 12 that meet regularly to discuss local chapter events and initiatives, current national campaigns and global issues to do with drug policy. Made up entirely of students and youth, each of us represent varied regions, cultures and chapters across Canada.
Are you interested in working towards sensible drug policy?
We welcome students and youth to join our campus and regional chapters to support our local, national and international work towards creating better drug laws and disseminating science-backed educational resources.
