We are looking for 120 reasons why we should change our drug laws – one reason for each of the 120 Members of Parliament!

The evidence is clear that we need to shift our approach and treat drug use as a health and social issue, not a criminal one.

This is an opportunity for you, in your own words, to tell the politicians in Parliament why they should support drug law reform and increased investment in harm reduction, health and social care.

You can check out other people's reasons below, share one you relate to on your social media, and then submit your own.
