The mission of KnowDrugs
KnowDrugs
was born from the desire to reduce the harmful consequences prohibitionist drug policies have brought to our society: People being stigmatised for their choices or dying because of lack of knowledge.

With KnowDrugs I want to raise awareness about a topic that is being silenced: People are taking drugs, regardless of their legal status. Drugs are harmful, but their harms can be minimised when people are educated and enabled to make informed decisions. 

I want KnowDrugs to continue on this mission while staying independent from governments, companies or other organisations.

What inspired KnowDrugs
As a product designer, I am helping companies to launch new digital businesses and products. And what seems totally normal in the world of for-profit, non-profits struggle, being chronically underfunded and lacking the resources and expertise to design, build and run successful digital products.

Having a background in Social Work, I explored the area of harm-reduction more in-depth and found out that there is an unmet need for objective, non-moralising information about drugs. Many people still don't have access to drug checking programmes and the results of those are spread across multiple websites, lack a consistent format and the link to in-depth information about substances.

Why you should support KnowDrugs
When I started to work on the KnowDrugs app as a side-project, I never thought it would become that popular. The growing number of users and rapidly evolving technologies, however, put me in a difficult situation: How should I pay for the expenses of running an app on that scale? How much more time can I spare besides my full-time job to invest into the app?

Having reached the limits of my current capacities - both time-wise and financially - I am reaching out to all of you. Party-goers, social workers, leaders of organisations from the area of harm-reduction and everyone else who thinks that everybody should have a right to know: Please support this project by becoming a Patron.

Thank you for all your past and future support!
