The Global Commission on Drug Policy, a panel consisting of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, and the former leaders of Mexico, Colombia and Brazil have issued a report claiming that the so called “War On Drugs” has failed and only fuels global organized crime. The BBC reports:

The Global Commission’s 24-page report argues that anti-drug policy has failed by fuelling organised crime, costing taxpayers millions of dollars and causing thousands of deaths.

Instead of punishing users who the report says “do no harm to others,” the commission argues that governments should end criminalisation of drug use, experiment with legal models that would undermine organised crime syndicates and offer health and treatment services for drug-users.
