This week, drug unit leads from across Europe will meet at the Horizontal Working Group on Drugs (HGD) in Brussels, at a meeting which is held every two months. On the agenda this time will be EU preparations for a new legislative package on psychoactive substances, the input of the EU into the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) and how the HGD will in future collaborate with civil society organisations.

In preparation for this meeting, a working group from the Civil Society Forum on Drugs has submitted a briefing on the EU input into the UNGASS.

EURAD is a member of the EU Civil Society Forum of Drugs and Fay Watson is currently the Vice-Chair of this forum.
