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.
Our extensive library of books and briefings sets out the global research on drug policy, including our flagship publication, ‘After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation’.
