Youth NGOs make their views heard on Global Drug Policy

Oct 8, 2018 | Actions, Blog, Supported

For decades, harsh drug policies have been implemented in the name of the « protection of our youth », however creating more harms on young people and their communities than the harm related to drug use themselves.

Ahead of the High-level session of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs that will be held in March 2019, a coalition of youth organizations address the governments of the planet : « We invite you to work with, and not for, the populations your drug control commitments affect the most – young people, people who use drugs, women, indigenous people, people from diverse cultural backgrounds, and other marginalized communities. »
