The Belgian drug law is 100 years old. For that long, it has been there as a legal basis to stigmatise and punish people who use drugs. For that long, this law has had a negative impact on public health and human rights.
Now that this experiment has been going on for literally a century without producing any significant results, we are ready for a critical evaluation of Belgian drug policy.
The campaign Unhappy Birthday is an action of the civil movements SMART on Drugs and #STOP1921. This initiative advocates the decriminalisation of the possession of all illegal substances for personal use and the establishment of a parliamentary working group to review the drug policy with a human approach.
