Forum Drugs Mediterranean – Established 2015 – Formerly FAAAT think & do tank.


FDM (Forum Drugs Mediterranean) is an international non-profit, non-partisan, and non-governmental research & advocacy organization, with roots in the Mediterranean bassin. Our work focuses on people & policies in relation with drugs that have traditional ties with the Mediterranean region.

Founded in 2015 as “FAAAT think & do tank”, our name changed to “FDM” in 2023. Our international activities are now channelled through the Cannabis Embassy.
