Description:

“SSDP is a non-violent youth oriented organization that neither encourages nor condemns drug use. Rather, we seek to reduce the harms caused by drug abuse and drug policies.

We believe that in order to protect the autonomy of individuals’ minds, bodies and spirit, drug laws and policies must always respect personal choice and freedom so long as a person’s actions do not infringe upon another’s freedoms or safety.

SSDP focuses on drug issues with the greatest impact on young and underrepresented communities. We strive to achieve sustainable policies that foster civil rights, health and safety through the exploration of alternatives to our current Drug War.”
