“Students for Sensible Drug Policy UK is part of an international network of young people and students that originally started out in the United States.
Students for Sensible Drug Policy UK was founded by a small group of students at the University of Leeds in April 2008. Since then it has grown into a nationwide network with chapters all over the country and gaining widespread recognition as the voice of students and young people working towards better drug policies.
We run educational initiatives, training events and an annual conference every year which is the focal point for all of our years activities and growth.”
Since Cognitive Liberty UK started SSDP have been very supportive of us, we would like to express our admiration and gratitude for all the good work SSDP does.
SSDP have chapters throughout UK universities: if your university doesn’t have one, SSDP and your student union will help you start one. The spreading of this grassroots movement is of paramount importance, it is also a great way to meet like-minded individuals who share your values.
As we understand it, SSDP are very much playing “the long game” in relation to drug-policy reform. They recognise that the current student population will one day be running the country: by ensuring that all UK students are informed on the issue and are forced to question the assumptions they have been spoon-fed SSDP work towards ending the cycle of fear and ignorance that perpetuates the War on Drugs
