A UN report which highlights the shortcomings of existing international drug policy. The report also recommends the creation of an alternative drug regulatory framework based on a model such as the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. This is the clearest statement to date from within the UN system about the harms that drug policies have caused and the need for a fundamental shift in drug policy.
