We must protect the rights of people who use drugs
Decades of a failed global war on drugs has had a devastating effect on our communities. The criminalization of drug use has led to an epidemic of infectious disease and overdoses, and has needlessly cost countless lives in Canada. We believe that in the interest of health and human rights, criminalization must be replaced with evidence-based policies that uphold human rights and protect public health. Pivot’s health and drug policy campaign works with people who use drugs to make changes that will meet their most pressing needs, including timely access to a range of harm reduction, drug substitution, and addiction treatment options in their own communities.
