The Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP) is a grassroots network of youth and student activists who are passionate about drug policy reform. Established in 2003, CSSDP aims to engage, educate and mobilize young people to push for evidence-based drug policies that prioritize harm reduction, public health, human rights and social justice.
Through their website, cssdp.org, the organization provides a platform for young people to share information, resources, and experiences related to drug use, policy, and reform. CSSDP is committed to promoting open and honest conversations about drugs and drug policy, challenging stigma and discrimination, and advocating for equitable access to healthcare, education, and support services.
CSSDP is run by a diverse group of volunteers from across Canada, including students, alumni, and community members. Their work includes organizing events and campaigns, conducting research, and building alliances with other organizations to advance their mission. CSSDP is an integral part of the broader drug policy reform movement in Canada and has been instrumental in shaping the conversation around drug policy among young people and policymakers alike.
