London School of Economics IDEAS arrangerte en åpen debatt på Old Theatre 23. oktober 2012, «The Global Drug Wars».

Innlegg ved David Courtwright, Nigel Inkster, William McAllister og Ethan Nadelmann.

Tema:
Since 1909 the international community has worked to eradicate the abuse of narcotics. A century on, the efforts are widely acknowledged to have failed, and worse, have spurred black market violence and human rights abuses.

How did this drug control system arise, why has it proven so durable in the face of failure, and is there hope for reform?

    Fem nobelprisøkonomer tar til ordet for å få en slutt på «krigen mot narkotika» i en ny rapport fra London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

    LSE IDEAS rapporten vil bli presentert for Guatemalas innenriksminister, Mauricio López Bonilla, onsdag 7. mai, på et offentlig arrangement på LSE. Guatemalas president Otto Pérez Molina, vil da ta rapporten videre til internasjonale fora som FN og United Nations and Organization of American States (OAS) for å drive frem en reform av den globale narkotikapolitikken.

    Rapporten skisserer virkningene av forbudet når det gjelder sikkerhet, narkotikaprisene, rettssikkerhet og folkehelse. Den kommer mens FNs generalforsamling forbereder seg på å innkalle til en spesialsesjon om narkotika i 2016 for å revidere narkotikakontrollsystemet. http://www.lse.ac.uk/newsAndMedia/news/archives/2014/05/EndWarOnDrugsReport.aspx
