Argentina Decriminalize Drug Consumption!
Sweet, sounds like progress at least in one country. Good news though if this works well in Argentina it might convince other countries to try it.
This just in… A federal court in Argentina has decriminalized the personal consumption of drugs in that country. According to the court’s ruling, punishing drug users only “creates an avalanche of cases targeting consumers without climbing up in the ladder of [drug] trafficking.”
Last month at a UN meeting in Vienna, Argentina’s Minister of Justice, Aníbal Fernández, said that the policy of punishing drug consumers was a “total failure.”
Finally one piece of good news from Argentina.
