Uoft’s Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s purpose is to provide informative and educational information about current drug policy reform in Canada. We encourage wide recognition of the social threat posed by the war on drugs and to promote an awareness of the dangers inherent in extensive reliance on prohibitionist policies and politics. We aim to involve the University of Toronto students and the public in developing and supporting programs that promote effective drug policies and foster debate and exploration within the Toronto community in order to understand the role that the current drug policies play in the general social order. We are working for a world in which drug policies are discussed as public health issues instead of criminal justice issues. Finally, we want to foster debate in favor of viable alternatives to existing drug policies, such as needle exchange programs, methadone treatment for heroin addicts, decriminalization, and other harm reduction strategies.
