Decriminalisation the Debate

Decriminalisation the Debate

The aim of this campaign is to encourage debate on such an important social issue, especially in view of the upcoming publication of the White Paper which will eventually be leading to drastic reforms in the law concerning personal drug possession, among other aspects.

Pulse has always been a firm believer in the need to have students considered as major stakeholders in such issues. Through this campaign, as it has done in the past, Pulse will be spurring debate and discussion on decriminalisation, with the aim of providing a clear picture to the Government and legislators on what students’ opinions are on this matter. Furthermore, Pulse will be providing an opportunity for students to get better acquainted with the facts and figures regarding this subject, but also and most importantly, the human realities behind a term which has unfortunately become a buzzword associated with controversy.

Therefore, Pulse calls for students to join in this campaign and inform themselves on what’s at stake prior to making a decision. We shall be providing a platform for all those interested to voice their opinions and contribute to a national discussion in the run-up towards a historic change in such a vital social subject.
