United Nations: Criminal Sanctions for Drug Use Are "Not Beneficial" | Drug Policy Alliance

From the article:

Today, a key working group of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) announced the release of groundbreaking recommendations discouraging criminal sanctions for drug use.

The working group recommendations say “criminal sanctions are not beneficial” in addressing the spectrum of drug use and misuse.
