  rice students for a sensible drug policy

Rice Students for Sensible Drug Policy (RiceSSDP) is the Rice University chapter of the national organization Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). We believe that our nation's drug policies are not working, and we are stimulating campus-wide dialogue about drug policy reform. Thus far, we have had a successful HEA Reform campaign in that Rice now officially advocates HEA Reform.

ssdp's mission

"As students and young citizens of this country, we believe that current U.S. policies concerning illicit drugs are harmful and ineffective. We are spending billions of dollars, giving up our Constitutional rights, and imprisoning hundreds of thousands of our citizens in a vain effort to stop drug use. The U.S. needs to acknowledge the failure of prohibition and support a policy that aims to reduce the amount of damage done to individuals and society by drug abuse. Students for Sensible Drug Policy is committed to providing education on the harms caused by the War on Drugs, working to involve youth in the political process and promoting an open, honest and rational discussion of alternative solutions to our nation's drug problems."


Rice SSDP was co-founded by Lindsey Trott and Vikki Hutto in January, 2001.

Our faculty sponsor is Dr. William Martin
