High Humans is a platform that offers the individual the opportunity to be open and honest about (recreational) drug use, to whatever degree.

With as a starting point the recognition of the individual and his or her own choice. The goal of the platform is to break the taboo surrounding substance use and to work together towards a better drug policy by starting the dialogue with each other.
