REPORT: The unintended negative consequences of the ‘war on drugs’: mass criminalisation and punitive sentencing policies | Penal Reform International

Penal Reform International is an international non-governmental organisation working on penal and criminal justice reform worldwide.

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

The consequenseces may not be unintended …but that’s another debate – the important point is to recognise and agree upon the breach of human rights, the damage to opportunities, to freedom and liberty, and the outright injustice in the name of protecting us all from the substances that have been labelled ‘drugs’.
