THE WAR ON DRUGS
EDM #743
Tabled 29 November 2016
2016-17 Session
That this House welcomes the report from the British Medical Journal, entitled the war on drugs has failed: doctors should lead calls for drug policy reform; notes that the report argues that all wars cause human rights violations, and the war on drugs is no different. Criminally controlled drug supply markets lead to appalling violence; further notes that the report also states that this year a thorough review of the international evidence concluded that governments should decriminalise minor drug offences, strengthen health and social sector approaches, move cautiously towards regulated drug markets where possible; acknowledges the actions of organisations such as Law Enforcement Against Prohibition who continue to argue for control and regulation of drugs; and believes that when the people who have been most affected and the people that have been enforcing the current system are saying it is not working, we must respect their opinions and take time to listen and learn.
