In 1999 the Drug Concerns Working Group was accepted by the Peace and Concerns Standing Committee as a project of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. Its primary mission was to alert Friends and others to the dangers of the U.S. "War On Drugs." The DCWG grew out of a Called Meeting of Friends on the Use of Drugs, the Drug Conference Planning Committee, and a Task Group on a Quaker Response to the Drug Problem in 1997 and 1998. The Drug Concerns Working Group of Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting was formed in 1998.
