'Drugs - Time for better drug laws' is Release's new campaign engaging the public around the issue of drug policy.
The failure of the current system is clear, it is time to stop criminalising 10,000s of people in the UK every year - it is time for better laws.
On 2nd June, Release has written to the Prime Minister calling for a review of the current drug policies, with a view to decriminalisation of possession for all drugs. This letter has been signed by leading QC's, three former Chief Constables, academics, politicians and high profile celebrities including Dame Judi Dench, Mike Leigh, Julie Christie, Kathy Burke and Sting. You can read the text of the letter the Prime Minister here.
