Doctors criticise UN’s approach to global drugs control

Excellent review of current drug policy discussions at the UN in respected UK medical journal, The Lancet.

Excerpt below.

Chris Ford, founder and clinical director of the non-governmental organisation International Doctors for Healthy Drug Policies (IDHDP), told The Lancet: “We know the global war on drugs has failed and this has had devastating consequences for individuals and communities around the world. Large amounts of money have been spent on criminalisation and repressive measures have failed to curtail supply or consumption.”
