Virginians Against Drug Violence {VADV} is a voluntary grassroots association of persons who participate in activities directed at ending the drug war in our state. We have a vision of peace, which recognizes prohibition as a failed concept that encourages imprisonment and other dehumanizing acts which are not good ways to achieve temperance and cause great harm.

US Nationwide Voluntary Committee of Lawyers

The VCL is an association of lawyers and judges whose members share strong misgivings about the wisdom and consequences of American's perpetual drug war. While favoring no specific drug control policies, the VCL seeks to promote, within the legal profession and beyond it, informed and honest discussion about the objectives of the drug war and its costs to our cherished institutions of liberty and justice. This is the view of one of our founders, and former United States Attorney General, Elliot Richardson.
