The Ghana Narcotics Commission Act 2020, Act 1019 represents an essential example for drug policy reform advocacy in West Africa. However, we have seen drug production and trafficking skyrocket, which offers further evidence that 'tough-on-drugs' laws do not work, hence the need for a paradigm shift towards humane drug policies that place people and communities first.

Forum to discuss critical issues about the new law of Ghana and explore strategies in its proper implementation as a country.
