The International Antiprohibitionist League (IAL) is an association of
scientists, drug experts, journalists, politicians from all over the world
whose aim is to work for the reform of prohibitionist laws on drugs.
Founded in Rome (Italy) in 1989, the IAL started its activities in 1992
after a federative agreement with the Transnational Radical Party.
As a multicultural and independent association, the IAL encourage studies
and research projects on the consequences of prohibition and proposes
alternative at both political and social levels.
The IAL activities include:
- organization and distribution of information between members of scientific
community and media, through bulletins, press releases, printed reports as
well as the sponsorship of conferences, seminars, debates;
- organization of initiatives to inform international parties and public
administrations, with special concern for members of National parliaments;
- support for the creation of local associations with the same goals.
The executive committee includes: Marie-Andree Bertrand, Professor of
Criminology at the University of Montreal (President); Marco Taradash,
Member of the European Parliament and journalist (Secretary); Antonio
Contardo, businessman (Treasurer)
Among the directive council are: Lester Grinspoon, Professor of Psychiatry

of alcohol and drugs in Utrecht (Netherlands); Kevin Zeese, vice-president
