Lets decriminalise drugs to end drug abuse:Global drug policy panel


The Global Commission on Drug Policy has recommended that countries end penalties for drug use and possession. The commission called for more research in making regulatory models while slamming UN for its poor efforts on curbing drug abuse. Notably, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and former presidents of Colombia, Mexico and Brazil are also a part of the commission.

What has prohibition done for us lately? Spawned 400+ and counting lethal nps's. Caused far more harm and killed many more people than even the hardest of drugs. It funds violent criminal gangs who our children will then come into contact with. This puts our children into contact with a variety of dangerous drugs. It strains police and nhs budgets. Promotes human trafficking etc etc etc.

Prohibition has failed so badly, i used to think only cannabis should be legal but now i think it has to be for all traditional drugs. It should have been done as soon as these awful nps's appeared and there would never have been a market for them.

The government will often say they will look at the evidence however the hypocrisy in their own laws is ridiculous. They have cannabis as schedule 1 of no medicinal value but allow gw pharma to grow cannabis and make a pharmalogicly identical product called sativex and schedule that at 4. So they say it has no medicial value but allow a big pharma company to grow it and sell the exact same thing and pretend its somehow different.

That is the best idea. At least it's a step towards removing the hypocrisy of "cannabis is a soft drug cause it's natural" ummm nope! Cocaine and heroin are both "natural". In this day and age all 3 drugs are altered and aren't pure when they arrive in the end users blood stream. The next thing we hear is that coke and smack fry your brain and are highly addictive and weed isn't. Wow really? Tell that to my girlfriend who spent a month in detox and 2 years later still has cravings for this supposedly non addictive drug. Let's not forget the psychosis it cause along with a instances of various other mental disorders. My guess is that as our legislators start being born in the late 60s or early 70s and younger, you will see a shift at legalization of drugs this age group often

It is well gone beyond time for us to have a sensible and mature policy regarding narcotics. Legalise, regulate, tax. Get it out out of the hands of criminals, off the streets, demystify it. What sort of mad world are we in when I can legally buy as much alcohol as I can drink but can't legally enjoy a pill or a line (not that I do anymore) It's time for bold, grown up thinking on this. Not only for those who use the third world folk who produce it. Billions wasted annually on an unwinnable war, countless lives lost, countless prison spaces we can change it all if we got some balls.

Issues of money laundering, intelligence gathering and other reasons not to seriously impact the drug trade. The approach seems different around the country. A&S police seem more concerned with other things, whereas I did see the Met have a habit of tarring all black teenagers with a bag of weed as a criminal. There's an issue of postcode and where the police focus. Tony Blair's son and Kate Moss lived in the right postcodes. Live on a council estate and you will be seen by multiple surveillance techniques. If you are a 15 year old kid standing outside your house in a park having a spliff and some ex-military steroid user is garotting you because you had a spliff and are confused, then I start to take an interest.
