Why June 26? The Global Day of Action coincides with the UN’s International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking – a day marked by major human rights violations, including public executions for drug offenders. This day is our opportunity to change the narrative – rather than punishing people who use drugs, let’s reform our drug policies to support them.
