Vobořil’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.
