Evidence-based drug policy, founded on early treatment and harm reduction

  • Treat drug use as a health issue, not a criminal issue (Portuguese model)
  • Legalise, regulate and tax cannabis
  • Trial prescription hydromorphone (analogue of heroin) to break the link between heroin addiction and crime
  • More high quality medically supervised injecting centres
  • Reform laws to allow front-of-house drug checking (‘pill testing’) facilities in areas of need including music festivals and other events
  • Legalise electronic vaporisers and liquid nicotine as recognised treatments for smoking
