Drug Laws Should be Based on Science, Not Ideology

The Vienna Declaration has over 15,707 endorsements so far. Have you signed yet?


For years, scientists from around the globe have been telling us the Drug War is a failure and that it is time to try a new strategy. Legalizing and regulating all drugs, they say, will end gang control of the illegal market created by prohibition and the inevitable violence and destruction that comes with it.

Unfortunately, politicians and governments have not been paying attention – or have not felt enough pressure from the public to change destructive drug policies.

The Vienna Declaration is a call for the incorporation of scientific evidence into the process of crafting international drug policies. It is an alarm clock designed to wake up our sleepy politicians to the news that drug policy reform is a URGENT MATTER, something that must be dealt with before it is too late.

The Declaration was drafted by a team of international experts at the XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010) in Vienna, Austria and has been endorsed by high-profile professionals in science, medicine, civil society, and law including former heads of state, religious leaders, and Nobel Laureates.
