“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.
