The Drug Policy Alliance is the nation’s leading organization of people who believe the war on drugs is doing more harm than good.
In our vision of tomorrow, people are not punished simply for what they put into their bodies but only for harm done to others. We fight for drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights. Our work spans issues from medical marijuana to youth drug education. We work to ensure that our nation’s drug policies no longer arrest, incarcerate, disenfranchise and otherwise harm millions of nonviolent people, especially people of color.
The mission of The Drug Policy Alliance is to advance those policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug misuse and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies.
DPA delivered this one trillion dollar bill to every member of congress on the 40th anniversary of the war on drugs.
