Transform Drug Policy Foundation.

Transform works to protect people better by legally regulating drug products, producers and users. Global drug prohibition has gifted a vast trade to organised crime that reaches every country, is frequently violent and highly profitable. And the trade continues to grow.

Our position is that people would be better protected if we regulated drugs. We take risks every day, but successful regulation is all about reducing risk and making potentially dangerous activities safer. Transform’s five models of regulation show how doctors, pharmacists and licensed retailers would take charge, undermining those who currently control the drug trade.

The First Book on How to Regulate Cocaine.

Help us produce the world’s first ever book to show how we can regulate cocaine & other stimulants.

We want to produce the world’s first ever book on how to legally regulate cocaine and other stimulants. Transform has already proven that cannabis can be safely regulated – and the governments of Canada and Uruguay used our advice.

We now want to answer a difficult question: ‘How could we regulate cocaine?’ To make change, politicians need to see how regulation can be done safely – and we can show them.

Fund us and be part of history.

Alcohol can teach us a lot about how we should regulate other drugs, yet we often treat ‘drugs and alcohol’ as if they were only vaguely related entities...which is clearly not the case. Read our CEO @Jamesqnicholls'
