Take Action

Submit Information to the Resource Library

Although governments and the UN have consistently failed to meaningfully evaluate the negative costs of the war on drugs, a substantial body of evidence chronicling these costs does exist, albeit never previously been gathered together in one place. For the first time, during this 50th anniversary year of the war on drugs, this website will compile a collection of key factual and analytical resources from around the globe, including reports, images, video, and audio media.

We welcome submissions from all sources, in all formats, as well as feedback and comments, so as to help make this website an information hub that is useful and interesting to anyone who cares about effective, evidence-based drug policy.

(Please note, given the diversity of information, analysis and viewpoints represented here, inclusion of a resource on this website does not necessarily imply an endorsement of all its contents by Count the Costs project partners.)

Send submissions to: info@countthecosts.org

  • Title

  • Date of publication (day/month/year)
