Our mission is to protect children from addictive drugs
by shining light on the science that underlies their effects.
Addictive drugs harm children, families, and communities.
Legalizing them creates commercial industries that make drugs more available,
increase use, and expand harms.
Science shows that addiction begins in childhood.
It is a pediatric disease that is preventable.
We work to prevent the emergence of commercial
addictive drug industries that will target children.
We support FDA approved medicines.
We support the assessment, treatment, and/or social and educational services
for users and low-level dealers as alternatives to incarceration.
