ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Global Commission on Drug Policy's report urging the adoption of a new drug policy in order to reduce drug abuse. The report states that criminalization, repressive measures directed at illegal drug producers and illegal drug traffickers and consumers have failed to eliminate the global supply and consumption of illicit drugs. It further tells that the report urges an increased investment in the health and social well-being of the affected individuals and communities.
