The 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act is now 50 years old. For half a century, it has damaged people and communities, undermined science and entrenched social injustice. It is not fit for purpose. For every year it remains in place, billions of pounds will be wasted, thousands of lives lost, and countless people needlessly criminalised. This has to stop. We will be working with Release, DrugScience and other partners throughout 2021 to build support for change.
