The Czech national drug coordinator, JindÅ™ich VoboÅ™il, recently made a series of striking proposals for the new Czech 2019-2027 drug strategy - including the legalisation and regulation of drugs as part of a wider pragmatic  strategy for reducing drug related harms.

VoboÅ™il’s proposals for the new strategy, still to be agreed by Government, seek to include responsible market regulation of drugs within a broader ‘harm reduction’ approach that emphasises public health, prevention and treatment. The proposals, include both addressing the harms of legal - but over commercialised - alcohol and tobacco markets, as well as addressing the harms of criminal drug markets under prohibition through an exploration of responsible legalisation and regulation.
