A gathering of 22 therapeutic specialists met at Johns Hopkins University and The Lancet, Britain’s prominent medicinal diary, on March 24 issued a demand the decriminalization of all peaceful drug use and ownership, straight calling the worldwide War on Drugs a disappointment. The paper by the Johns Hopkins-Lancet Commission on Public Health and International Drug Policy approaches the world’s legislatures to “move gradually toward regulated drug markets and apply the scientific method to their assessment.”

Dr. Chris Beyrer, an educator at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the senior creator of the report, told the CBC: “We’ve had three decades of the War on Drugs, we’ve had decades of zero-tolerance policy. It has had no measurable impact on supply or use, and so as a policy to control substance use it has arguably failed. It has evidently failed.”

The experts decided that the prohibitionist policies of the last five decades “directly and indirectly contribute to lethal violence, disease, discrimination, forced displacement, injustice and the undermining of people’s right to health.” They reference the “striking increase” in murders in Mexico since the administration mobilized its crackdown on the cartels in 2006. The expansion has been dramatic to the point that specialist’s have needed to amend future drops in that nation.

The report indicates that “excessive use” of imprisoning in drug enforcement is the “biggest contribution” to higher rates of HIV and hepatitis C infection among drug users. It likewise indicates stark racial incongruities in drug enforcement, especially in the U.S., and human rights infringement emerging from enforcement, incorporating an expansion in the torment and abuse of detainees in Mexico.

“The goal of prohibiting all use, possession, production and trafficking of illicit drugs is the basis of many of our national drug laws, but these policies are based on ideas about drug use and drug dependence that are not scientifically grounded,” said Dr. Beyrer.
