Sustainable Development and Drug Policy Reform


Misguided drug laws and forced eradication of plants used to produce drugs exacerbate poverty, fuel conflicts, further marginalize subsistence farmers, and divert public resources away from spending on health, education, and development.

Stop the Harm  is calling for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and an end to drug policies that fuel poverty, corruption, violence, and instability.
