Drug Policy and Societal Transformation

This episode features a discussion with Helen Clark, Former Minister of New Zealand and former Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, and Mohamed Mahmoud Mohamedou, Professor of International History at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. The so-called War on Drugs has led to devastating consequences. According to Helen Clark, it is time to rethink the drug policies rationale and anchor it in science and evidence. In this sense, the Global Commission on Drug Policy believes policies on drugs should be health- and human rights-based, and people who use drugs should not be criminalised.
