A group critical of the "war on drugs", which "advocates decriminalizing drug use by those who do no harm to others."

The Global Commission on Drug Policy (GCDP) is a group calling for an end to the "war on drugs". Its members come from a wide range of nation states. Many are former heads of state or have had connections to the UN.

The work of the secretariat is directed by the Executive Secretary, Khalid Tinasti.
