Nice People Take Drugs
To reduce the hypocrisy in the way we manage drugs in society - there needs to be much greater honesty about drug use and those who use them. The stigma attached to drug use has made it almost impossible to have any form of sensible discussion. Drugs are part of society and there are much more effective ways to ensure they cause as little harm as possible.
But in order to do this, we need your help. Please donate what you can today.
To be kept informed about the Nice People Take Drugs campaign, and to find out what action you can take to support it, please email us.

Our friends over at the Drug Policy Alliance have shown their support for our campaign by taking these photos on the roof of their office in New York. We are thrilled to have their support.
The NYC photographer was persuaded to pose for a couple of shots too!

Nice people take drugs; and some politicians do too! A new deck of cards is being produced to mark World Drug Day on 26 June, which shows a number of prominent politicians who have admitted to using drugs. They are now part of an establishment that criminalises others who have similarly experimented with substances such as cannabis, and many of them will no doubt be hailing the success of the war on drugs on World Drug Day.
There are some cards left unfilled, so please have a look at our deck and send in your suggestions of politicians who you think deserve to be part of the pack!

The NICE PEOPLE TAKE DRUGS campaign has caught the attention of bloggers, journalists and drug policy activists worldwide. The feedback received at the Release campaign HQ is that this slogan has said something new, that whilst very simple, has never really been said before.
So now we want to shout it from the rooftops (literally). We have asked our friends worldwide to get together at famous landmarks, in big open spaces, or huddled in their offices and re-create the slogan using big flash cards.
The winner of the best image sent in to Release will receive free t-shirts, merchandise and will have their image chosen to be sent to UK newspapers.
