Help make legal cannabis a reality

One day currently illegal drugs will be legalised, taxed and regulated - starting with cannabis.

Can you imagine what that would look like?

We can.

At Transform Drug Policy Foundation we’ve have spent nearly two decades researching and refining our vision of how to do it safely.

Today we are fundraising for our new publication, 'How to Regulate Cannabis: A Practical Guide'.

It will show policy makers how a regulated cannabis market can take control away from organised criminals and put it back in the hands of the government. The models we are proposing will make better use of taxpayers' money and safeguard young people, communities and public health.

For more detail about the book see our dedicated Justgiving page for this project.

We have already raised half the money for the book, and we’re now seeking £5,000 more to match it and finish the job. The book is due to be launched in October, so we’ve given ourselves a month to raise the match-funding.

In 2009 our book 'After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation' (which has been downloaded over 500,000 times) described how a legally regulated drug market could work.

“Blueprint is the most evidence-based, balanced discussion of drug control policy that I have seen. It should be compulsory reading for all policy makers”
-- Professor R Morgan, Former HM Chief Inspector of Probation

'Blueprint' showed people that the unthinkable was thinkable. 'How to Regulate Cannabis’ will show how legalising cannabis is doable.

Please donate today, and ask your friends to do the same.
