Global Commission Report – Ending the Drug War

The Global Commission on Drug Policy put out its report not long ago, and having read through much of the report, I was very happy with a great deal of what they’ve put forward.  Though I could quote many sections at length as being heartening to read, I think this really gets to the heart of it: “Begin the transformation of the global drug prohibition regime. Replace drug policies and strategies driven by ideology and political convenience with fiscally responsible policies and strategies grounded in science, health, security and human rights – and adopt appropriate criteria for their evaluation.”  Really excellent stuff.  USA Today has a short writeup here, though the full reports and commission links above provide more detailed information.
