Watch INPUD’s short video explaining how to do decriminalisation right! Produced in cooperation with Drugreporter.
All drug reformers agree: decriminalising drug use and possession is crucial. Over the past decade more and more countries have implemented some form of decriminalisation. But is it really helpful if not done in the right way? What do people who use drugs have to say about the various forms of decriminalisation?
In this short movie produced with our technical collaboration, the executive director of INPUD, Judy Change, briefly explains the position of people who use drugs.
You can read more about the INPUD position in the study ‘Drug Decriminalisation: Progress or Political Red Herring?’ This report is intended to open up the debate around decriminalisation and to make clear the expectations held by people who use drugs for future action on drug policy reform. Most importantly, it includes a call for full decriminalisation without sanctions as the new baseline for measuring progress on decriminalisation in the future.
