We want a world where drugs are regulated, harm is reduced, and policy promotes health and social justice.
Transform Drug Policy Foundation is an independent charity that works to change the way drugs are controlled. For over 50 years, the war on drugs has harmed communities, increased the risk to individuals and gifted a multi-billion dollar trade to criminal gangs and networks.
Our drug laws are not fit for purpose. Transform promotes awareness of effective alternatives, provides new models of regulation, and supports those who are moving towards better approaches.
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’.
Transform’s 5 Models of regulation.
Medical prescriptions – for registered users of drugs such as injectable heroin
Sales to registered adult users – for drugs such as amphetamine, powder cocaine and MDMA
Sales to adult users for drugs such as cannabis
Sale and consumption for adult users – similar to Dutch ‘coffee shops’ – for drugs such as cannabis
Sale of lower-risk products such as caffeinated drinks and coca tea
