A global network promoting objective and open debate on drug policy
The purpose of this report is to help the Heads of State and Government of the Americas to establish a frame of reference to address the drugs problem in their countries and to guide future multilateral policies and actions.
These scenarios are stories about what 'could' happen in the future in and around the hemispheric drug system, based on current trends, and including relevant political, economic, social, cultural and international dynamics.
This report contains recommendations for federal legislative reform related to civil rights, deficit reduction, law enforcement, foreign policy, sentencing, effective drug treatment, public health, and drug prevention education.
The report documents the failing role that current federal drug policies play in supporting safety and health and draws attention to the acute need for an improved system of supports for people who inject drugs.
