We conduct world class scientific research & make it accessible to all

Drug Science is founded on the efforts of our expert scientific committee and their many hours of work delivering, reviewing and investigating scientific evidence relating to psychoactive drugs, and supported by our esteemed board of trustees.

Scientific Committee

Our Purpose

Overarching

Commercial and political expediencies cause views and policies that create more harm than good, leading to unnecessary suffering and loss of life. Drug Science tells the evidence-based truth about drugs, engaging public, media and policy makers, equipping them with the knowledge and resources to enact positive change.

Our Purpose

Scientific

By delivering, reviewing and investigating scientific evidence relating to psychoactive drugs, free from political or commercial influence, our Scientific Committee develops a foundation for sensible and effective drug laws.

Our Purpose

Operational

We believe the public have a right to scientific knowledge and understanding that relates to their health and wellbeing. We democratise this science through the distribution of accessible, unbiased and up to date research, providing education on drugs and drug-taking, for the improvement of individual and social well being.
