Adam Smith


In 1996, Adam founded and published an online newsmagazine devoted to national and international drug policy reform, and in 1998 he launched the first campaign ever to roll back federal drug war legislation in the US, winning back the right to financial aid for students with drug convictions. From that campaign, he and others launched Students for Sensible Drug Policy, now a UN-recognized NGO active in 40+ states and more than 30 countries. In the years since, Adam has founded or helped launch numerous successful organizations and campaigns on issues ranging from mail-in voting, to youth civic engagement, to cannabis policy. His writing on drug policy has appeared in dozens of print and online publications.
