Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students who are concerned about the impact drug abuse has on our communities but are also acutely aware of the damage that the war on drugs has on our society.
It was sparked by racism and classism, it damages the lives of millions of consenting, non-violent adults by throwing them into the prison-industrial system rather than offering them valuable medical help, and contributes to the militarization of police forces and increasingly problematic interactions between police officers and citizens.
We recognize the need for change in the face of all of this and thus SSDP helps mobilize and empower young people to participate in the political process and push for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting back against counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that directly harm students and youth. We also spread awareness about applying harm-reduction principles through peer support methods in our community. Click here to view this club’s registration information.
