Pope in Brazil warns against legalising drugs and conflates use with misuse

Pontiff says liberal policies being considered in Latin America will not end suffering as he continues first overseas visit

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

Drug policy has never been rooted in scientific evidence – instead it has been rooted in 1950s moralistic arguments, scapegoating, fearmongering, racism, extreme anecdotes and misinformation ….  and we keep re-hashing the same old arguments.

 

A scientific evidenced based drug policy is long overdue.
