The Global Drug Survey 2014 findings - full report Here
The significance of these finding for governments need to be taken in conjunction with the predominant finding from Global Drug Survey’s hypothetical questions about how reducing the criminal penalties for the possession of small amounts of drugs would impact upon people’s drug using behaviours, for more on this see our recent blog post.
The overwhelming finding across countries was not that a reduction in criminal penalties would encourage hoards of non-drug users to try drugs or for current drug users to increase their use. Instead it was that people who use drugs would be more open with their family and friends about their use and more likely to seek help or advice about the use and associated health harms.
Government drug policy should not be caught up in a polarized debate about legalization but instead should consider crafting a public health policy that optimizes the health and well-being of all its citizens. The first step is to treat people who drugs as rationale adults who wish to be informed and have a strong desire to preserve their health and happiness and contribute to their society as much as the person next to them.
If changing drug laws reduces societal harms and promotes health among those who (use) drugs and leads to a happier, more productive society with less discrimination and compounded deprivation of the most vulnerable then surely change is worth considering with objectivity and evidence. Any other outcome would appear to be made by someone who was off their heads on drugs!
