Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is a grassroots organization with a mission to promote sensible drug policies on campuses and communities around the world. SSDP has been working towards drug policy reform since 1998, and has since grown to have chapters in over 30 countries.
The organization aims to empower young people to participate in the political process, while providing them with the necessary tools and resources to advocate for sensible drug policies. SSDP promotes harm reduction strategies and evidence-based drug education, and works towards ending the destructive War on Drugs.
SSDP’s vision is a world where drug policies are grounded in science, compassion, and public health, where drug use is treated as a public health issue and not a criminal justice issue, and where individuals are no longer punished for what they put into their own bodies. With its strong global network of young activists and dedicated staff, SSDP continues to push for policy change and drug education reform in a rapidly changing world.
