Report Calls for an End to Cannabis Prohibition

“The world has also taken sharp notice of the cannabis-legalisation experiences of the US states of Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, and the District of Columbia in a country where opposition to drug legalisation has been deep, and of the nationwide cannabis-legalisation experiment in Uruguay. The fiscal imperative of reducing incarceration and the fear of adulterants in cannabis obtained illegally have been part of the debates about the US policy changes.
Although changes in the legal status of cannabis do not signal changes in prohibition-oriented policies with respect to other drugs in the USA, concrete experiences with large-scale regulated cannabis markets provide an opportunity for rigourous assessments that will inform larger drug-policy debates.”
