Anyone’s Child: Families for Safer Drug Control is an international network of families whose lives have been wrecked by current drug laws and are now campaigning to change them.
No one doubts that drugs can be dangerous – that’s why we should do all we can to prevent children and young people from taking them. But banning drugs and criminalising those who get involved with them causes even more harm.
Drug-gang violence, countless lives ruined by criminal records for possession, and entirely avoidable deaths from contaminated street drugs – the damage caused by the current approach can no longer be ignored.
We need to move beyond fear, discrimination and punishment, and towards drug laws that are centred around honesty, compassion and health.
If your child had a problem with drugs,
what do you think would help them most?

“Alan and Miguel became part of the more than 100,000 deaths in Mexico since the drug war began. This war has devastated both my family and my country.”
“When I hear the news that a young person has died and yet another family has joined the bereaved parents’ club, I feel helpless as I wonder how many more need to die before someone in government will actually do something about it? As I stand by my child’s grave, what more evidence do I need that things must change?”

I pledge to spread the word about the need to reform our failed drug laws. I will tell my friends, family and politicians how the drug war harms young people, rather than protecting them. I will encourage people to look at the evidence and consider alternative approaches – such as decriminalisation and legal regulation.

We should do everything we can to
prevent children from taking drugs,
but if they still do, which would you rather they took?
Drugs that are:
- Of known strength & purity
- Produced in accordance
with strict medical standards
- Available with health warnings &
safe dosage information
Drugs that are:
- Of unknown strength & purity
- Cut with dangerous adulterants
- Produced by organised criminals
- Being sold to fund conflict
Let those in power know you want to see a change in our approach to drugs – a change that will help keep children and young people safe.
Don’t let another young person become a casualty of our failed drug laws. It’s time for change | @anyoneschild
