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.

Harm Reduction

Drug use is a public health concern, not a criminal justice issue.  We advocate for appropriate responses to reduce and prevent harm.
See our published news blogs and resources.

Drug Policy

We work to support harm reduction, evidence-based legislation, and drug policy reform on local, national and international levels.

High Level Ministerial Segment Day Two • Youth RISE

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.

Thoughts From Vienna (Commission on Narcotic Drugs 2019)

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.
