Her testimony about losing two of her beloved sons to fatal overdoses was featured [along with only six other people from around the world] to spotlight the harms inflicted upon our families through prohibition and the War on Drugs.
The scheduling of substances directly impacts families by criminalizing and stigmatizing our loved ones who use drugs, while heavily promoting and profiting off of other legal (but dangerous) drugs like alcohol.
The report was presented on June 26, 2019 in Vienna to coincide with the World Drug Report. The full report is now available for download to readers worldwide, and available in six different languages.
