Statement - International Drug Users' Day

1 November 2018

International Drug Users’ Day is a deeply important day for our communities, and for INPUD as a network. The injustices inflicted upon the drug using community all over the world continue. If human rights are to be respected and defended, and if health is to be truly prioritised, then prohibition, and the so-called ‘war on drugs’, must end. As we have insisted, again and again, their dismantling must be led by those so catastrophically impacted by this senseless war: people who use drugs themselves.
