Legalize Belarus pursues a change in public attitude towards people who use drugs.
We believe that society will greatly benefit from being better informed about the psychopharmacological properties of controlled substances, their history, potential risks of consumption and known methods of harm reduction. People who acquired mental disorders due to drug use should to be treated with compassion and support.
We contend that the state should exclude possession of small amounts of controlled drugs from the criminal code, develop a meaningful and effective harm reduction policy, and make drugs that are capable of treating clinical conditions available to those in need.
We are trying to materialise our vision by means of civic education, public advocacy and supporting the convicted.
