Scotland is experiencing what can only be described as a drug death crisis.
We have one of the highest levels of drug deaths in the world – with the situation getting worse each year.
We cannot continue as we are.
We, the undersigned, demand immediate action to address the levels of addiction, overdose and deaths associated with drugs use in Scotland.
We call on the Scottish and UK Governments to address this major public health crisis by taking an evidence led approach to policy that examines all options, including decriminalisation.
