Today sees the publication of a new report, Working To Decriminalise People Who Use Drugs which describes how progress has been made across five different jurisdictions – Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Poland and the US State of Maine.
Welcoming the report Tony Duffin CEO of Ana Liffey Drug Project said,
“This report is very timely. Not just for the counties evaluated, but across all jurisdictions where drug policy is being debated. For example, in Ireland the Government recently established a Citizens Assembly on Drug Use to consider the legislative, policy and operational changes the State could make to significantly reduce the harmful impacts of illicit drugs and make recommendations. Available as of today, this report is a significant addition to the literature and can help to inform this debate.”
