Drug Science

The Drug Science Student Society is a student-led group that aims to provide evidence-based education on all psychoactive substances.

Drug Science is the leading independent scientific body on drugs in the UK. We work to provide clear, evidence-based information without political or commercial interference.


“Can ‘magic mushrooms’ really treat depression? How can we keep students safe from drug overdose? Why are some drugs illegal while others are not?”

We’re Drug Science Cardiff, the student society aiming to educate the public and healthcare professionals about issues related to illegal and psychoactive substances. We are the first society of our kind in Cardiff.

Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting lectures, debates, and socials. We cover a range of topics including:

- Ongoing medical research into psychedelic drugs

- The history of the ‘War On Drugs’ and its influence on current drug policy 

- Drug harm reduction within the student population & helping those with addictions

Join Drug Science as a member to have full access to our events, including talks from expert speakers in the fields of science, law, and politics related to drugs. We will also be hosting social events including a book club, debates, and collaborations with other societies. 

We welcome students from all courses, all knowledge levels, and all preconceptions.

Please log in to view the committee.
