After growing frustrated with current drug policies, University freshman Carsten Singh decided to find his own solution.
It came in the form of starting a new student organization -- Students for Sensible Drug Policy.
SSDP, a Washington, D.C., based organization with chapters at colleges and universities around the nation, provides education on what its members believe to be the harms caused by the War on Drugs.
"Our main goal is increasing student and faculty awareness of harsh drug laws and the ineffectiveness of the government's war on drugs," said Singh, a freshman from Conyers. "Current drug policy is causing more problems than alternative policies which have the potential to reduce damage done on individuals and society."
