The Canadian Association of People Who Use Drugs (CAPUD) is suing the government of Canada to decriminalize drug possession and casual transfer.
CAPUD is joined in this effort by the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition, Moms Stop the Harm, and the Lethbridge Overdose Prevention Society.
The city of Vancouver has requested permission to decriminalize drug possession within Vancouver.
Similar efforts are being mounted in Toronto, Ontario, as well as the cities of Saskatoon and Regina in Saskatchewan.
The Drug User Liberation Front (DULF) in British Columbia is seeking permission from the Canadian government to establish a safe drug supply service modeled on the early cannabis buyers' clubs.
The Vancouver City Council recently voted to endorse DULF's request.
Vancouver already tried to set up its safe supply program however some argue that it's limited and much too difficult for many people to access.
