Governments should be considering how to introduce responsible regulation of currently illegal drugs, says the Global Commission on Drug Policy in a bold new report.

At this public talk in Auckland two members of the Global Commission will outline how regulation is rapidly moving from theory to practical reality. Register now

In the report Regulation: The Responsible Control of Drugs  the Commission tackles stumbling blocks in public debate on regulation. The case is made for governments to take control of illegal drug markets and thereby weaken criminal organisations that now profit from them. 

Two Commissioners who will present are:

Rt Hon Helen Clark, former NZ Prime Minister and Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Ruth Dreifuss, former President of Switzerland and Minister of Home Affairs, Chair of the Global Commission on Drug Policy.
