Release's blog

Kirstie Douse, Head of Legal Services, discusses proposals to kick people out of their homes if they, or someone else living at or visiting the property, are convicted of certain drug offences.
Release's researcher Caitlin Oddy, analyses the MPS's stop and search data. She discusses how racial disparity is evident at every level of the criminal justice system, even when previous convictions are isolated from the data.
Release supports decriminalisation on pragmatic grounds. The current system of criminalisation creates harms and does not deter drug use.
