Drug Free Australia's Position Statement Against Illicit Drug Legalisation, Regulation and Decriminalisation is supported by more than 205 affiliates and 150 individuals in 57 countries, for quick access to the web site of the affiliates that have logos please click on the 126 NGO's on the Logo page which shows the great strength of the World Wide Drug Prevention NGO's. This number is growing daily. We support a balanced and humane illicit drug policy that aims at primary prevention and recovery-based treatment and rehabilitation. This can never be achieved if illicit drugs are condoned through their legalisation. Legalisation equates to ‘regulation’ in the illicit drug context. There is a maxim that remains constant - 'availability, accessibility and permissibility will increase consumption’ The Position Statement is available here Browse the growing list of supporters and NGOs supporting this Position Statement.
