Drugs Policy Report   posted by DavidB @ 3/09/2007 05:48:00 AM

As I have previously posted on the subject of drugs policy, I was interested to see a new report in the UK from a Commission appointed by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). This is not to be confused with the better known Royal Society of London for the Improving of Natural Knowledge, usually known simply as the Royal Society. Nevertheless, the RSA is a respected independent body promoting discussion of public policy issues. In this case it had appointed a Commission chaired by a professor of politics and including experts on various aspects of drugs policy, not least a senior officer at Scotland Yard.

The full report is available here as a 2Mb pdf file. While I haven't read the full 330-page report line-by-line, it certainly contains a lot of useful information and will contribute to rational debate.
