Release celebrate their 40th birthday


This year Release celebrate 40 years of service at the cutting edge of drug policy campaigning and drug related legal service and information provision. Sebastian Saville, Release director, has written a fascinating retrospective about the organisations long history, from the turbulent 1960's through to the current problems with contemporary policy with the crime reduction agenda still relegating civil rights and public health to the back seat. The article Release: Needed then - needed now, is in drink and drug news and can be read in full here.

Its such a shame that Release isnt better funded, they do amazing work and could do so much more.

For those who havent been, the Release conference is well worth going to.
