"Count the Costs is a timely initiative. The failed war on drugs has empowered organised crime, destabilised governments, violated human rights and devastated human lives everywhere."

Fernando Henrique Cardoso
Former President of Brazil

"[The] campaign for governments to count the costs of the War on Drugs and explore alternatives deserves support - laying out the evidence in this way is a crucial first step to delivering political change. I particularly welcome moves to mainstream the drug law reform debate to groups working in all the other sectors affected by drug policy that should, but don't, speak out on this issue."

Caroline Lucas MP
Former Leader,
 UK Green Party

"The human, economic and institutional costs of the ill-labeled 'War on Drugs,' rival those of some of the major bellicose episodes in human history. As in those other calamities, this is purely man-made and carries no value -- just the contrary -- for human security. This madness must be stopped."
