Students for Sensible Drug Policy Australia is a coalition of young people and students working
together to educate the community and advocate for research-driven drug policies grounded in
compassion and human rights. We are committed to challenging the stigma of drug use and creating
an inclusive environment that welcomes the participation of all people.
We envision a future where drugs are managed for the benefit of society through creating real,
meaningful change from campuses to the halls of parliament. Founded in 1998, SSDP is comprised of
thousands of members at hundreds of campuses in countries around the Globe including the United
States, China, India, Denmark, France, Pakistan, Australia and dozens of other countries.
SSDP takes a ‘harm reduction’ approach to drug use. This means we do not condemn or condone the
use of drugs. Instead, we recognise that many of the harms associated with drugs are produced or
exacerbated by bad policies. Honest information about drugs can only assist people in making better
choices for themselves and their communities.
