The Canadian Association of People who Use Drugs (CAPUD) and four individuals have filed a Charter lawsuit against the Government of Canada seeking decriminalization of drug possession and necessity drug trafficking.

The lawsuit asserts that criminalization creates overdose risk and restricts PWUD from accessing treatment and harm reduction services. The suit requests the amendment of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act to decriminalize drug possession as well as drug trafficking for the purposes of necessity - to support oneself, to offset the high costs of drug use, or to provide safe supply during the current environment of widespread contamination.
