    Excerpt from The Huffington Post article by James Cockayne and Summer Walker:

    Our new policy report for the UN’s own thinktank, the United Nations University (UNU), entitled What Comes After the War on Drugs? argues that UNGASS 2016 will largely confirm the current approach to drug control, despite growing calls for change. The report, based on a series of consultations involving over 50 Member States, 16 UN entities and 55 civil society organizations, considers the major political and policy trends leading into UNGASS 2016, and offers recommendations for strengthening global drug policy efforts at a time of deepening divisions.
