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.
See our Sensible Cannabis Education Toolkit.
Who We Are
A Collective of Students and Youth Across Canada
CSSDP’s strength really relies on the hardworking chapters across the country. They are the foot soldiers of our cause: Sensible Drug Policy. We have seen powerful initiative from each chapter in the form of social organization, knowledge dissemination, harm-reduction outreach, and event planning.
Advocacy and representation
Ask any drug reformed-minded civil society organization at the UN and they will tell you the same thing. The Commission on Narcotic Drugs is draining.
SSDP, CSSDP, SSDP Australia, Youth Rise, and YODA members are attending the 62nd Commission on Narcotic Drugs meeting. Here’s an update from Day 3.
The second day of the 62nd Session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs may have been lighter in content in the form of interesting and progressive side events, but was certainly not without noteworthy occurrences.
With the High-Level Ministerial Segment (HLMS) in the rearview mirror, it was business as usual at the United Nations on Monday as the 62nd Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) meeting kicked off in Vienna.
While the Philippines proceed with extrajudicial killings of people who use drugs, youth activists continue to protest against these atrocities. We, the youth organizations, remonstrate by lying on the floor of the Rotunda – the UN exhibition space. Welcome to the 2019 Commission on Narcotic Drugs Ministerial Segment.
In 2009, the United Nations adopted what is informally called “The 2009 Political Declaration.” 2019 was the date that the UN agreed they would re-examine the declaration, evaluate its effects, its impacts, and member states success in achieving the goals that they had set out.
