Regulation - The Responsible Control of Drugs
The Global Commission on Drug Policy will release its new report, Regulation: The Responsible Control of Drugs. This report examines in detail how governments can take control of currently illegal drug markets through responsible regulation, thereby weakening criminal organizations that now profit from them.
This new report provides a practical roadmap that tackles the real implications and recognizes the difficulties of transitioning from illegal to legally regulated drug markets. It offers concrete answers regarding the organizational capacity of state institutions to regulate and control a legal market of potentially dangerous products. It highlights the challenges facing impoverished populations that constitute the “working class” of the illegal drug markets. It offers possible ways forward to deal with the risks inherent to the resilience of organized crime. Finally, this report calls for a reform of the prohibition-based international drug control system, which is compromising a universal and holistic approach to the “drug problem”.
REPORT WILL BE AVAILABLE: MONDAY, 24 SEPTEMBER 2018 AT 17:00 UTC
The public presentation of the report by ten members of the Global Commission on Drug Policy will take place at the Palacio de la Escuela de Medicina, Mexico City, at 10:30am local time.
