Funded 2018-2021 Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy is a grassroots network of youth and students who are concerned about the negative impact drug policies have on individuals and communities. They consider problematic drug use in society primarily a health issue rather than a criminal justice issue, and they advocate for appropriate responses to reduce and prevent harm from drug use. They mobilize their members to participate in the political process at all levels, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while combating counterproductive drug policies, particularly those that directly harm young people. CSSDP works alongside other organizations and campaigns to support harm reduction, evidence-based legislation, and drug policy reform on local, national and international levels.
