Hemispheric Drug Policy: Is it Time for Reform?

June 27, 2013 // 3:00pm4:30pm

Hemispheric drug policy and possible reforms were at the center of the Organization of American States’ General Assembly meeting held in early June.  The debate was guided by an OAS report on the hemisphere’s drug problems and possible scenarios for addressing the challenges posed by drug consumption, production, and trafficking and associated social problems, crime, and violence.

Discussions during this event included the outcomes of the OAS-led discussion on drug policy, the perspective of the U.S. government, and the future of drug policy reform in the hemisphere.
