Reforming international drug policy

The Lancet, Volume 387, No. 10026, p1347, 2 April 2016
““Drugs have destroyed many people, but wrong policies have destroyed many more”, said Kofi Annan, the former UN Secretary-General. Indeed, international drug policy has been fraught with inconsistency and controversy. … For the first time in two decades, the UN General Assembly’s Special Session (UNGASS; April 19–21, 2016) will be about the world drug problem. It will be a crucial moment for revisiting and reforming international drug policy. To inform the Session’s discussions, the Johns Hopkins–Lancet Commission on Drug Policy and Health was launched in New York, USA, on March 24, and is published in today’s issue.”
