Youth Position Paper for UNGASS 2016

Global Youth Coalition Consultation compiled by Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) with collaboration from Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP), Students for Sensible Drug Policy UK (SSDP UK), Youth Organisations for Drug Action (YODA), and YouthRIse have released a report detailing the results of a global consultation of thousands of youth across every major world region.

Their aim?  To make the youth voice heard at the upcoming UNGASS!

DIOGENIS supports this initiative and signs this position paper.

“We want a drug policy that embraces harm reduction, which should be enshrined in the international drug control conventions, as a matter of urgency.

We want a drug policy that creates a culture of safety around drug use.

We want a drug policy based on evidence, compassion, health, and human rights.

We want drug policy to start making sense.”
