ECAD is Europe’s leading network organisation of cities that work towards drug free societies. We are committed to addressing drug problems through a broad array of responses, including, but not limited to prevention, treatment and a smart use of law enforcement interventions. We reject calls for legalization of drugs and fully support the United Nations Drug Conventions in their existing form. We represent millions of Europeans who believe in restrictive drug policies and who recognize the importance of preventing and treating drug abuse rather than resigning ourselves to its inevitability.
