Global Commission on Drug Policy

This is important.

This is a very balanced and yet very strong indictment of the status quo, and an intelligent suggestion of the way forward. This outstanding, short report from the Global Commission on Drug Policy is the big drug policy news this week!
The report is in English and Spanish. Take the time to read it.

The Commission includes some global heavyweights:the current Prime Minister of Greece, George Papandreou, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, from the U.S. -- Paul Volcker (former Chair, Federal Reserve Board), George P. Shultz (former US Secretary of State, Treasury and Labor under Republican presidents), John C. Whitehead (former Deputy Secretary of State under Pres. Reagan, former chair of Goldman Sachs), former Presidents of Brazil, Switzerland, Mexico, and Colombia, other former top United Nations and government officials from around the world, and intellectuals and business leaders.

Link to it on Facebook, blog about it, write LTEs about it, call your favorite talk radio show to talk about it.

I agree with everything this report says.

However it omits to mention how efficiently prohibition advances the cause of ethnic and social hygiene policy.
