Event Details

In this presentation, Mike Trace will describe how the US government has been the main architect and cheerleader for the international system of prohibition, and in particular two of its main articles of faith – aggressive repression of production and distribution of drugs, and mass arrest and harsh punishment of users. Over time, the limited impact of these strategies on the scale and harms associated with drug markets, and the significant negative consequences, have become better understood. Many countries around the world are therefore moving towards more health and human rights based approaches. Within the US itself, policy and strategies are changing rapidly, and Mr Trace will explore the potential for the USA to become a leader in promoting humane and effective drug policies, and an example of best practice in moving away from punitive and repressive policies.
