Decriminalization Done Right: A Rights-Based Path for Drug Policy was collaboratively developed by 21 civil society groups composed of people who use drugs and their respective organizations as well as non-governmental organizations throughout Canada. The platform was released to the public in December 2021; and since its release, many individuals who share its vision for drug policy reform in Canada have endorsed its call to action.
One of its key recommendations relates to necessity trafficking and drug thresholds, and it has become increasingly clear that there is a lack of understanding in both areas. Why are they misunderstood by so many Canadians yet imperative to people who use drugs? Stimulus Connect 16 aims to clear this confusion.
Our expert panel will explain how thresholds and necessity trafficking preserve life rather than feeding the war on drugs and will answer attendee questions.
