There is a silent prohibition that has been going on for more than a century: prohibition on drugs. Since 1971, US President Nixon started the “war on drugs”, too many people are harmed by this policy, completely unjustified. The war has created illicit markets, international drug cartels, and many innocent people have lost their lives during the war.
End the Drug War suggests that we can maintain an attitude that drug use is harmful without having to resort to prohibition. Open Drug Policy aims to advance the policies that reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition and promote the autonomy of individuals over their bodies.
