Decriminalize all drugs, business and world leaders tell UN

Leaders of Global Commission on Drug Policy including Richard Branson and three ex-presidents say special session on drug policy was ‘fatally flawed’

A British billionaire, three former presidents and a renowned Aids researcher have called for all drugs to be decriminalized at a press conference that was sharply critical of the United Nations’ latest drug policy agreement, adopted this week.

Leaders of the Global Commission on Drug Policy said the UN’s first special session on drugs in 18 years had failed to improve international narcotics policy, instead choosing to tweak its prohibition-oriented approach to drug regulation.

“The process was fatally flawed from the beginning,” said Richard Branson, the head of the Virgin Group, adding that it may “already be too late” to save the international drug law system.

Notice how its the Totalitarian and religious run countries within the UN that are against decriminalizing drugs. I mean how long will it take, with billions spent? Even more so to understand that maintaining criminalizing drugs and the the war of drugs is a hugely costly ineffective policy?

This is the problem at the UN, the authoritarian and religiously run nations. Hold the majority at the UN.

Its time to do away with this defunct system from its original true purpose.

Those who helped set up the UN, like Elanor Roosevelt, would be appalled that the likes of China, Saudi Arabia etc, are sitting on the UNCHR. Two of the worst abusers of humans rights.
