“The pursuit of a militarized and enforcement-led global ‘war on drugs’ strategy has produced enormous negative outcomes and collateral damage,” says the 82-page report. “These include mass incarceration in the US, highly repressive policies in Asia, vast corruption and political destabilization in Afghanistan and West Africa, immense violence in Latin America, an HIV epidemic in Russia, an acute global shortage of pain medication and the propagation of systematic human rights abuses around the world.”

Thanks for posting the article. I copied the paragraph above … thought it was right on the money! I live in Virginia and the laws here are horrible and ridiculous. 1st time offense for cultivating is five years and a stiff fine. I particularly agreed with the last sentence in that paragraph. Managing chronic pain would be so much easier if cannabis was legalized at the federal level … trying to get pain meds is it’s own nightmare these days.
