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.
