This government’s drug policy is letting down the people Labour is set up to represent,
whether it’s children being exploited by dealers to sell heroin on our estates, BAME people
being disproportionately imprisoned for possessing cannabis, or treatment services struggling
under the weight of austerity.
With governments around the world moving to harm reduction policies, and organisations
such as the British Medical Journal to the Royal College of Physicians supporting reform
here in the UK, we believe it’s time for Labour members to have a voice on how we approach
this complex policy issue.
