Under prohibition, drugs are controlled by the law of the jungle in which 
some of the worst criminals on the face of the earth rule supreme. The 
International Antiprohibition League plans on replacing that violent chaos 
with a more rational and peaceful system of law, education, and treatment. 
It thus seeks to replace the law of the jungle with the rule of law.

To accomplish these important goals, the IAL has launched an ever-expanding 
international campaign utilizing a wide variety of nonviolent strategies 
consistent with the ethos and methods of the Transnational Radical Party, 
with which it is affiliated.

Its major strategy is to spread the uncomfortable truth around the world 
that drug prohibition causes immense harm and precious little good, despite 
the sincere belief by millions of well-meaning people that the criminal 
drug treaties and national laws constitute the major protection against 
drugs for the people of the world. It strongly agrees with one phase of the 
movement to repeal the U.S. alcohol prohibition amendment: repeal of 
prohibition was justified as a measure to save children from harm.
