Transform Drug Policy Foundation.

Transform works to reduce drug-related harms through evidence-based reforms to policy and practice.


We believe that current drug laws damage everyone in society, especially the most vulnerable.  


We want to see a world in which drugs are regulated effectively, risks are reduced, and policy promotes health and social justice.
