At a global level, the drug policy reform debate continues to broaden and the number of countries experimenting with different approaches to drug control towards better public health outcomes, particularly with respect to cannabis, is on the increase.

Building on this momentum, the Drug Policy Desk of UNITE was established in 2020 to serve as a hub to assist Parliamentarians in promoting policy approaches for better public health outcomes.


The Drug Policy Desk within UNITE’s network is uniquely positioned to provide parliamentary engagement support and accompany legislators who have the will to promote reform and to energize national debates on drug policy, fostering exchanges between an increasingly diverse group of parliamentarians and a wide range of stakeholders, creating a dynamic platform of debate and initiative in the drug policy sphere.
