Fear of mind-altering substances has created an unnecessary World War, mostly fought by criminal justice systems, with the victims often at the bottom of society. Punishment is seen as the only solution to get drug use under control. This has turned out to be not only wildly ineffective, it has also created a chaotic system full of corruption, death and broken lives.

At Controlled Substance, we believe education, dialogue and responsibility should control drug use, because that's what science says works. We are based in Amsterdam, a city in which many new ideas about drug policy first emerged. Amsterdam was first to tolerate cannabis, end the heroin epidemic and make education the primary tool in the drug war. We've learned some very valuable lessons we think the world should know about. 

Through fun, immersive journalism and reporting, we take a scientific look at drugs and drug policy. We respect concerns of people who have their doubts, we do too sometimes. But we are at the clear conviction that at heart, this is an issue about individual liberty. Those who actively advocate War, we gladly debate. Because the history of prohibition shows that criminalizing drug use has caused more harm than the drugs themselves.
