Drugs in the UK: YourVoices

YourVoices is a campaign to foster debate about drugs and drug policy in the UK by collecting and sharing the experiences and views of real people. The campaign is non-judgemental and has no position on UK drug policy, but we do want to break through some of the stigma which prevents honest conversations about drugs.

The real life stories and voices on drugs we’ve collected are shared on the campaign Instagram account @yourvoicesuk. You can see the 16 most recent stories below - click on the images to read each story, and follow the Instagram account to join in the conversation!


Tell us your story

If you live in the UK and feel that your life has been impacted by drugs, we’d love to hear your story. You may have been impacted directly, through drug use by friends or family, or through your work. Your experiences may have been bad or good.

YourVoices is run by the Conservative Drug Policy Reform Group (CDPRG). Responses are treated in the strictest confidence and won't be shared outside of the organisation without your express permission. We will happily change names by request.
