    Not sure if this is the right place to post, but hopefully I can get some insights.

    I want to campaign against the Psychoactive Substances Act. I know that it's already passed, but it's had very little attention among the general public and I want to see it repealed, because it personally affects me and I think it's one of the most ridiculous things this government has done so far. There are a lot of other issues I want to campaign for, this is just the most important one to me right now.

    I just don't really know where to start. I don't have many politically-inclined friends and I don't have much presence on social media.

    I believe the best option for you would to join a campaign which advocated for some of the very same positions you yourself share. So, join a political party such as the Liberal Democrats or Labour and I would suspect that locally you will find people like yourself who disagree with the Psychoactive Substances Act. There, you can push for the party to adopt your position internally through motions or emails to local MPs.
