On March 15Th , at the 60Th Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna, Drug Policy Future presented four position papers on balanced, effective and human rights respectful drug policies, to many governmental delegations and NGOs on the occasion of the official launch of the network: San Patrignano is a founding member of this network.
Drug Policy Futures is an alliance of networks covering more than 300 NGOs from all over the world, a global platform for a new drug policy debate based on health. DPF rejects the simple dichotomy between ”a war on drugs” on the one hand and ”legalization” on the other. Instead DPF believes in engaging in an open dialogue about the strengths and weaknesses of global drug policies. DPF advocates for evidence based strategies to promote public health, safety and the well-being of society, including those addicted to drugs and their families.
