ADVOCATING STRONGLY FOR FREEDOM NO USE OF
ILLEGAL DRUGS AND ILLEGAL USE OF LEGAL DRUGS
JOIN US IN THIS GLOBAL MOVEMENT
Be part of a global movement - a growing movement that is aiming to stop the promotion of the illegal drug industry and other advocates of illegal drug use. OVOM aims to protect our children, society and environment through international collaboration. It is a movement that stands for a restrictive drug policy and promotes a drug-free lifestyle. A community MUST be FREE from the pressures and harms of all drugs and cartels.
We must respect the International Treaties. Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, as amended by the 1972 Protocol; the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, 1971, and the Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic and Psychotropic Substances of 1988 and the Convention on the Right of the Child (CRC).
COMING SOON! OVOM Will be releasing a letter to the World Leaders and Parliament - Stay Tuned!
EFFECTIVE PARENTING IS VITAL TO CREATE A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN
Parents, grandparents, other family and friends have one thing in common: they want the best for their child and their community.
Raising children is a joy but one of the most difficult 'jobs'. Most of the parents feel a kind of guilt of not being the good parent.
Our vision is for society to TURN AWAY FROM DRUGS, to STOP THE DEMAND, and thereby stop the supply of drugs. TAKE POWER AWAY FROM THOSE PROMOTING ILLEGAL DRUG USE, and those who promote harmful, illegal/legal drugs for their own profit and power.
OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF:
the negative impact of drugs on individuals and communities;
the human right to live in a drug-free society;
drug policies that are based on scientific facts and not political ideology;
the current confusing and misleading international language on liberalisation, decriminalisation or legalisation of drugs;
the illegal and clear violation of all international agreements that protect society, (especially children) from harmful drugs.
‘YOUR VOICE, OUR FUTURE’
We believe everyone can play a role promoting health, and drug-free lives, if given the facts.
By prioritising the rights of the child, family and community within society it is only then that human rights will be taken seriously. It is only then, armed with the facts about harmful drugs and with the support of the international conventions, that politicians can be held accountable.
OVOM unites and equips communities world-wide with knowledge to enable their right to live and grow up in a drug-free environment
IT ALL BEGINS AT HOME
Drug use is beginning at a younger age in many jurisdictions. Parents have a right to be concerned, but there are many ways to ensure the health and safety of your children. Gaining as much information as possible, even when your children are under 12 years old, is a wise investment in their futures. The information in this portal will provide a good starting point.
DRUGS AND THE ADOLESCENT BRAIN
Adolescents brains are 'wired' differently than adults. Adolescents tend to use the amygdala more– in this case emotional areas – of the brain in making decisions. This is because the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for executive decisions, is one of the last areas of the brain to mature (usually by the age of 25).
