A Quiet Word:
Lobbying, Crony Capitalism
and Broken Politics in Britain

The Global Commission on Drug Policy (GCDP) is a panel of 22 world leaders and intellectuals which issued an assessment in 2011 of the global War on Drugs, opening its report with "The global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world." The emphasis in drug policy on harsh law enforcement over four decades has not accomplished its goal of banishing drugs and has in fact spawned wide, dramatic eruptions of violence, the report continued. By way of alternative, the GCDP report "advocates decriminalizing drug use by those who do no harm to others." [1]
