Despite the violent abuses that came to light against people who use drugs, the Serbian Orthodox Church (SOC) has been recognized by the Serbian government as an important partner in treating people with addictions. NGOs working in the field have expressed serious concerns about the SOC's ambitions in this area.

Palju õnne! Kanep on nüüdsest USA-s kahe osariigi tasandil legaliseeritud. Colorado algatuse poolt hääletas 52.7% valijatest, vastu 47.3%. Washingtonis oli pooldajaid veel rohkem, peaaegu 56%. Oregonis seekord ei õnnestunud, pooldajad jäid 45 protsendiga alla vastaste 55 protsendile. Lisaks otsustasid Massachusettsi valijad meditsiinilise kanepi legaliseerimise kasuks, Arkansas' valijad aga napilt (52/48) vastu.

Eks näis, kas need jäävad mõneks ajaks väikesteks rotiaukudeks uimastisõja "Berliini müüris" või hakkab kogu õuduste koloss varsti varisema. Nagu eelpool mainitud, siis järgmise pudeda paneeli peksab ilmselt veel tänavu pulbriks Uruguay.

Ohoh, paistab, et kurikuulus uimastivastase propaganda masin DARE ("Just Say No!") jätab edaspidi kanepi oma hirmutamisdiskursusest välja. Teatab Toke:

Has the national DARE organization -- Drug Abuse Resistance Education -- removed the discussion of marijuana from its curriculum? It appears the answer is yes, reports Kevin Shaub at KNDU.

Nearly 100 students who graduated from the Sunset View Elementary DARE program in Kennewick, Washington, will be the last group to be taught the potential dangers of marijuana, said the Kennewick Police Department's DARE officer, Mike Meyer.

"The new curriculum starts as of December for us here in Kennewick," Meyer said. "It does not bring up the subject of marijuana at all."

Samal ajal jätkab kohalik sopa-ajakirjandus hüsteerilist jampsimist ja kergeusklike alusetut hirmutamist.

Delfi ja TV3 levitavad järjekordset krokodilli-jama. Jama toetub “kõlakatele”, mida Nelli Kalikova on enda väitel täpsustamata allikatest kuulnud, ja politseimajor Risto Kasemäe “ekspertarvamusele”. Jamajutu taustaks näidatakse millegipärast kaadreid Moskva ärimehest, kellele tema elukaaslane kirvega raskeid kehavigastusi tekitas.

Kui see ei ole narkohüsteeria õhutamine, on see lihtsalt väga vastutustundetu ajakirjandus.

Venemaal levinud narkootikum, mida tema toime tõttu on rahvasuus hakatud kutsuma “krokodilliks”, võib olla jõudnud ka Eestisse.

MTÜ AIDSi ennetuskeskus juhatuse esinaise Nelli Kalikova sõnul on selle narkootikumi kasutamise tagajärjel väga kiiresti vaja inimese jäse amputeerida. /—/

Politseimajor Risto Kasemäe sõnul valmistatakse “krokodilli” kodusel teel. Ta ei välistanud, et seda on ka Eestis. “Mööname, et seda võib kuskil liikuda, aga meie ei ole seda kätte saanud veel,” lausus ta.


Delfi uudisesse manustatud TV3 uudisklipis jagab Kasemäe ka juba klassikaks kujunenud absurdset “retsepti”, mille kohaselt valmistatakse krokodilli nii, et lisatakse kodeiinile või desomorfiinile kanget olmekeemiat.

Küll aga on kuulda arengutest Mehhikos. ABC News vahendab AP-d:

The legalization of recreational marijuana in the U.S. states of Washington and Colorado will force Mexico to rethink its efforts to halt marijuana smuggling across the border, the main adviser to Mexico's president-elect said Wednesday.

Luis Videgaray, head of incoming President Enrique Pena Nieto's transition team, told Radio Formula that the Mexican administration taking power in three weeks remains opposed to drug legalization. But he said the votes in the two states complicate his country's commitment to quashing the growing and smuggling of a plant now seen by many as legal in part of the U.S.

"Obviously we can't handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States, at least in part of the United States, it now has a different status," Videgaray said. "I believe this obliges us to think the relationship in regards to security ... This is an unforeseen element."


Arvata oli, et Mehhiko hakkab pärast Colorado ja Washingtoni referendumeid mõistaandvalt köhatama ja kulme võngutama. Mängureeglid on ju üleöö muutunud! Sama kirjutab George Murkin (Transform UK):

"The US, perhaps ironically now, has historically been the biggest cheerleader for such prohibitions on the global stage. A complete U-turn from this position isn’t realistic, but it will be interesting to see whether, at the international level, they at least tone down their “tough on drugs” rhetoric now that they themselves are the first to do the previously unthinkable.

Even if there isn't much of a change in the US’s posturing about drugs in international forums, the hypocrisy of demanding that other nations carry on enforcing prohibition while they themselves are retreating from it, could be enough to encourage a range of countries to start agitating for reform. What is to stop the Netherlands, for example, from finally solving its “back door problem” and legally regulating production and supply to its cannabis coffee shops, which have for decades operated in a quasi-legal paradox. Change is already well under way in Latin America, and the developments in Colorado and Washington will only help the region’s case for the need to explore alternatives to the war on drugs."

Pete Guither kirjutab sellest, mis juhtub, kui USA justiitsministeerium keeldub meediale kommenteerimast kanepi legaliseerimist osariikide tasandil. Juhtub see, et meedia pöördub Kevin Sabet' poole. Kes ei tea, siis Sabet' on elukutseline narkodemagoog.

Some of the network media have been trying to cover the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington and clearly are in catch-up mode, not really knowing how to talk about it. And they’re completely thrown by the fact that the DOJ, for the most part, isn’t coming right out and commenting. So they’re all forced to turn to… Kevin Sabet.

Check out this ABC piece by Christing NG: Marijuana Legalization Celebrations May be Premature, Lawmakers and Experts Say.

The experts on what the federal government will do appear to be… Kevin Sabet. /---/

What’s that – something like a dozen paragraphs out of a not particularly long story dedicated to total speculation by a former employee of the federal government about what the federal government will do.

And I’ve seen this in a number of articles. I asked Christine why she devoted so much time to this, but she hasn’t responded yet.

I asked another reporter why he depended on Kevin Sabet quotes and he told me: “I too would like some answers from the DOJ but in the absence of that we have to give our readers some idea of how they might be leaning.”

But the question is, how does Kevin know how they’re leaning? Why couldn’t the reporter give the basic facts of the federal-state conflict without having to turn to someone who appears to be nothing more than a media whore looking for more attention?

I asked Kevin if he was being paid to speak for the federal government or whether he just enjoyed making stuff up? He said he wouldn’t answer me unless I took back some of the things I’ve said about him in the past…. I decided I didn’t really need to know the answer that bad.

Mõned lingid hiljutistest arvamusartiklitest. Filmimees Eugene Jarecki (The House I Live In) kirjutab The Guardianis, et tunneli lõpus terendab valgus.

There is a new consensus that the economic view is becoming more influential in shifting attitudes on drugs, that the amount of money saved from policing and the amount gained through taxing legalised drugs is swaying opinion. Obviously we would all shudder to think we live in a country where only the economic collapse of a depravity like this should bring about its end. But I think it's also true that what's happening is more complicated – economic calculations meeting up with humanitarian concerns. So you have the likes of Grover Norquist, the conservative founder of Americans for Tax Reform, and Chris Christie, the Republican New Jersey governor, finding unlikely bedfellows with Russell Simmons and Danny Glover, producers on my film. All see a failed approach. /---/

What will bring about change is public demand. The public has to boo and hiss politicians who pander in this way – who say they are being tough on crime when they are destroying communities. We need to tell them that we won't let them vilify our neighbour to keep the penal system running. We will do that if we recognise that drug-mongering is no more substantial than WMD-mongering. And we know how that turned out. Americans have been an impressionable lot, but we're becoming less so. Bit by bit, we're realising that the "war on drugs" makes no sense. And, if we let politicians know this, they have no choice but to become smarter and answer our demands.


Guardianis on veel artikleid; ühes leitakse, et Washingtoni ja Colorado referendumid on kanepikeeluseaduse lõpu algus kogu maailmas.

Denver Relief, one of 500 medicinal marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, offers itself as testament to the fact you can openly, legally sell the drug without the sky falling or drugged zombies rampaging.

Which is just as well, because on the same day that Obama won another term, Colorado and Washington voted to legalise marijuana for recreational use, landmark decisions with profound implications for the decades-old, US-led "war on drugs".

Seeb, 37, an entrepreneur and civic activist, did not doubt its significance. "It's the beginning of the end for marijuana prohibition."

Quite a prediction, given successive presidents since Richard Nixon invested billions in criminalising the drug, jailing thousands for possession and pressuring the rest of the world to follow suit. The war on drugs seemed as engraved into the political landscape as Mount Rushmore.

Except now, at least in relation to marijuana, it seems to be crumbling. Seeb's confidence is shared in the US by a broad range of politicians, analysts, activists and former law enforcers who argue legalisation will generate tax revenue, hit drug cartel profits and curb the disproportionate jailing of Latinos and African Americans.


India Times kirjutab, et Colorado ja Washingtoni arengute valguses tuleks kanep ja selle saadused charas ja bhang kiiremas korras Indias taaslegaliseerida.

With two US states - Washington and Colorado - voting to legalise the recreational use of marijuana, a similar liberal approach towards mild intoxicants in India is up for debate. Consumption of marijuana and other cannabis derivatives such as bhang dates back hundreds of years with strong roots in Indian culture. From being the indulgence of baul singers of Bengal to the festival of Holi, marijuana use has rarely been seen as deviant social behaviour in Indian society. In fact, till 1985, marijuana and other cannabis derivatives were legally sold in the country through authorised retail shops. However, the enactment of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in that year - carried out under pressure from the US - pushed the marijuana trade underground. This in turn pushed consumers and dealers towards harmful drugs such as smack, that had higher profit margins but far worse health implications.

Tuntud uimasti- ja inimõiguslane Damon Barrett kirjutab Transform UK blogis, et mõnikord on rahvusvaheliste kokkulepete rikkumise üle põhjust rõõmustada.

The United States is again in violation of international law. That is a strong statement and one that reminds us of the invasion of Iraq, Guantanamo bay, water-boarding, rendition, and the strong international legal arguments made about these situations.

But in this case the violation will be hailed by many as a positive step. /---/

The laws in question are the 1961 UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and the 1988 UN drug trafficking conventions (which has a longer, duller title). Alongside one other treaty (which deals with synthetics) these form the bedrock legal foundation of the global drug control regime. Most countries follow them very closely, including the US. /---/

[W]hat sets these ballot initiatives apart is that there is no grey area to exploit, and it would take some legal gymnastics to interpret your way past that. This is straight up legalisation (and regulation) of recreational use, production, and sale, which is simply not permitted. It's what the system was set up in large part to prohibit, with marijuana receiving particular attention alongside coca and opium. While most substances are listed in annexed schedules, these three are written into the very terms of the treaties ('cannabis' is the term used).

The US (alongside over 180 other states) is required, under a very robust and politically supported regime, to 'limit exclusively to medical and scientific purposes the production, manufacture, export, import, distribution of, trade in, use and possession of drugs'.

There is more, of course, and there are various provisos and caveats on certain provisions, but this is a 'general obligation' of the regime around which all else revolves. In other words, the US is not just in breach of some marginal aspect of the system, now, but a fundamental requirement of it that goes to the heart of prohibition. /---/

[I]nternational legal arguments about the Colorado and Washington results will certainly arise. They must, though it will likely be in the rather closed and stale environment of UN drugs diplomacy. When that happens it must emerge is that these ballots are a victory for the rule of law even as they bring the US into conflict with the drugs conventions. Fundamental legal principles of proportionality, fairness and justice, not to mention democracy, have won out over arbitrary and unreasonable controls on human behaviour.

LA Times üritab selgitada, kuidas on võimalik, et Obama sai Colorados vähem hääli kui kanepi legaliseerimine. (Vastus: ka teepidulised hääletasid osariigi õiguste laiendamise poolt).

Weed is now a winner.

The politics of marijuana legalization have gone from the fringes to the mainstream, catching opponents off guard and even startling some proponents with their own success.

Voters in Colorado and Washington easily passed ballot initiatives — 55% to 45% in each state — to legalize the possession and sale of marijuana.

So how did this happen? A third legalization measure stumbled badly in Oregon despite the state's progressive leanings, with some supporters pointing to a disorganized and underfunded campaign.

What transpired in Colorado and Washington were disciplined efforts that forged alliances between liberals and tea party conservatives, often using public health arguments to advance their cause.

Proponents and analysts said both states benefited from existing medical marijuana statutes, money from national liberalization supporters and a sometimes disorganized opposition.

Tuesday's vote on the measure in Colorado amounted to a popular revolt against the establishment. Despite opposition from the governor, attorney general and Denver's mayor, 1.3 million Coloradans voted for Amendment 64 — which as of last count had received 50,000 more votes of approval than President Obama, who won the state by 5 percentage points.

Mehhiko president Calderon ütleb otse välja, et USA-st pole enam viisakas nõuda teistelt riikidelt uimastisõja jätkamist. (KHQ Local News <-- AP)

Mexican President Felipe Calderon says the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in two U.S. states limits that country's "moral authority" to ask other nations to combat or restrict illegal drug trafficking.

Calderon says the legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado represents a fundamental change that requires the rethinking of public policy in the entire Western Hemisphere. /---/

Calderon was joined on Monday by leaders of Belize, Honduras and Costa Rica in calling for the Organization of American States to study the impact of the new laws and saying the United Nations' General Assembly should hold a special session on the prohibition of drugs by 2015 at the latest.


Samalaadseid uudiseid Costa-Ricalt vahendab Bloomberg Busnessweek.

The legalization of recreational marijuana use in the states of Colorado and Washington last week will lead Latin America to increasingly question the merits of the war on drugs, said Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla.

The first U.S. states to decriminalize will spur demand at a time when Central American nations and Mexico are paying a high price to halt shipments, Chinchilla said in an interview yesterday in Queretaro, Mexico, at the Mexico Business Summit. /---/

“This is an inflection point that is going to demand something that some Central American countries have already been doing, which is to analyze in a deeper way different scenarios in the war on drugs,” Chinchilla said. /---/

The moves in the U.S. will “create a dissonance between some policies and others,” Chinchilla said. Some policies, “far from containing demand, will stimulate it, while others are trying to limit supply, at an extremely high cost.” /---/

Chinchilla said she needs more information about the consequences of making drug sales legal to decide whether that would be a desirable policy.

Matthew Yglesias ajalehest Slate vaeb, kui palju legaliseeritud kanep Colorados-Washingtonis maksma võiks hakata. Ilmselt mitte just vähe.

Back in July, I learned the striking fact that if marijuana were fully legal, a decent high could be had for a few cents.

Now that Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes—no “medical marijuana” fig leaf here or even Dutch-style toleration—will pot prices crater?

Almost certainly not. /---/

The main roadblock to a dirt-cheap high is that even though marijuana will soon be legal in Washington and Colorado, it’s still illegal in the United States of America. Consequently, entrepreneurs looking to get into the industry are going to be troubled by the reality that both Washington and Colorado are part of the United States of America. On a day-to-day level, this isn’t necessarily a huge deal. The Drug Enforcement Agency only has so many agents, and can’t substitute for the Denver and Seattle Police Departments in terms of routine enforcement of marijuana prohibition. Even with no change in the underlying state laws, simply instructing state and local law enforcement personnel to stop enforcing the law would be in many ways a game-changer.

But in terms of economics, the main way marijuana criminalization raises prices has nothing to do with individual possession or low-level retailing. The issue is that currently marijuana isn’t grown, dried, and distributed the way a normal agricultural product would be.

True legalization ought to drive the price way down by bringing modern cultivation and production methods to bear. In Canada, industrial hemp is grown for about $500 per acre. But that’s done on large farms, not small grow houses. With the application of modern efficient agribusiness methods, marijuana prices should be more like tea prices—closer to $3 an ounce of usable product than the current $300.

Yet none of this is going to happen as long as marijuana cultivation is against federal law.

India Times tuletab meelde ajalugu, mh seda, et 1961. aastal vaidles suuriik häälekalt, ehkki edutult vastu ÜRO ühtsele keelustamiskonventsioonile.

During the negotiations for the UN treaty signed in New York, a group of cannabis and opium producing countries, led by India, opposed its intolerance to the sociocultural use of organic drugs. They were however overwhelmed by the US and other western countries which espoused tight controls on the production of organic raw material and on illicit trafficking.

The sharp divergences between the caucuses led by India and the US emanated from their contrasting domestic policies, particularly on cannabis. While most of the states in the US had banned all narcotic drugs by the '40s, India had a more pragmatic approach since its colonial days: its restrictions were focused on harder substances like opium. The Indian hemp drug commission appointed in 1893, far from finding it addictive, hailed cannabis for the "mild euphoria" and "pleasant relaxation" caused by it.

The dominant view on cannabis in the UN deliberations leading to the 1961 treaty could not have been more different. However, in the compromises that followed to hammer out a consensus, the final draft of the treaty defined cannabis in such a manner that it left scope for India to carry on, for instance, with the tradition of bhang being consumed on a large scale on Holi. The treaty clarified that the cannabis forbidden by it was only "the flowering or fruiting tops of the cannabis plant" , specifically "excluding the seeds and leaves when not accompanied by the tops".

In deference to the scale of traditional consumption in India, the 1961 treaty also gave it a reprieve of 25 years to clamp down on recreational drugs derived from the tops. It was towards the end of this exemption period that the Rajiv Gandhi government came up with a law in 1985 conforming to the 1961 treaty : the narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances Act (NDPS).

Accordingly, NDPS replicated the loophole provided in the treaty's definition of cannabis, whereby its leaves and seeds have been spared the stigma of contraband. Besides, NDPS specified that cannabis meant charas (the resin extracted from the plant), ganja (the flowering or fruiting tops of the plant) and any mixture or drink prepared from either of the two permitted forms of marijuana. Thus, NDPS allows people to smoke pot or drink bhang so long as they can prove that they had consumed only the leaves and seeds of the cannabis plant.

Huvitav lugu Kanada ajalehes. British Columbia narkodiiler räägib, et legaliseerimine USA-s toob talle ja temasugustele pigem bisnist juurde kui võtab ära.

How will Washington’s new law impact your marijuana export business?

Washington might become a larger shipment point because the new laws will allow for the legal possession and transport of some amount of pot. The law will also educate the consumer and make the market more discerning. The pot smoker in Washington will be able to choose the highest quality product. He’ll know what he’s buying. That might result in more B.C. bud staying in the state instead of passing through. I don’t know. But the law’s impact on the overall export market will be negligible. Our weed gets shipped wherever the B.C. bud brand carries the most cache because that’s where we get the highest dollar for it. These days, that means the East Coast of the United States.

An Angus Reid Public Opinion poll found that 75 % of British Columbians are in favour of regulating and taxing marijuana. Do you favour marijuana legalization?

Absolutely. My coworkers would be the first people applying for licenses and permits because we already have all the infrastructure in place. If it were legal and a civilian wanted to enter the weed business, he’d have a ton of overhead that we don’t have. He’s got to buy land, build a greenhouse, light it up and then he’s got to figure out how to harvest a good crop. Our growers already know what kind of fertilized food works best, how to simulate sunlight cycles to maximize their yield and what strains are popular with consumers. We already have an intimate understanding of the product and its relationship to the market. Legalizing weed would be a huge advantage for us.

Legalization would change other parts of the business, too. Right now, transportation accounts for about 30% of your cost. The person who drives 300 pounds of weed across the country makes a pretty fair chunk of change for his trouble. If we could ship the product with FedEx, our margins would explode. Same with the money. You can’t exactly put a million bucks on a plane, so you’ve got to use what we call a wire. These are people with cash businesses who are willing to exchange the money they have here for your money somewhere else. They don’t do that shit for free. Another benefit is that the violence would decrease. The people who work for Budweiser don’t shoot the people who work for Coors.

To make our readers jealous, approximately how much money do you make in a month from the sale of marijuana?

Each month? In the neighborhood of $25,000. Marijuana isn’t a big part of my income though.

See on nii kuradi tüüpiline... Aga samas meeldiv uudis: järjekordne endine eks-narkosõjard, UK endine siseminister Jacqui Smith, kes 2008. aastal otsustas kanepi ohtlikumaks aineks tagasi klassifitseerida, tunnistab, et too otsus oli loll. (The Guardian).

Jacqui Smith has admitted that her decision to upgrade cannabis to a Class B drug when Home Secretary was wrong and that education would have been a better option than criminalisation.

The former Labour MP defied advice from the Government’s panel of scientific experts to change the law in 2008, despite evidence that it would not deter millions from smoking the drug.

Mrs Smith said she was “less hardline” now and conceded that the legislation had caused “confusion and dissent”.

She told Radio Times: “Knowing what I know now, I would resist the temptation to resort to the law to tackle the harm from cannabis.

“Education, treatment and information, if we can get the message through, are perhaps a lot more effective.”

She described legislation as a “blind alley” that prompted discussion of the law rather than the impact of the drugs themselves and acknowledged that some people could use cannabis without harm.

The Guardian teatab, et ÜRO nendib, et Afganistanis on moonikasvatus jälle vohamas, kuna tooroopiumi hind mustal turul aina kerkib.

The amount of Afghan farmland planted with opium poppies has increased by nearly 20% this year, after high prices in 2011 tempted more farmers into growing the drug.

Blight and bad weather meant the harvest of opium in the world's biggest producer of "black gold" fell by a third, according to the United Nations annual opium survey. But in the longer run that shortage could help keep prices near record highs, fuelling further expansion of poppy farming.

"High opium prices were a main factor that led to the increase in opium cultivation", said Yury Fedotov, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in a statement. Despite the fall in actual production, the crop was still worth $700m this year.

Concern about the future has helped push up prices for opium, which is easily transportable and can be preserved for years. In a country with a limited and unreliable banking system, these factors have made the valuable drug a source of income for many farmers and traders.

Washington Posti kolumnist Katrina vanden Heuvel leiab, et nüüd, kus Obama enam käsist-jalust seotud polevat, on tagumine aeg narkojamale lõpp teha.

Enough is enough. The president should instruct the DOJ to de-prioritize marijuana-related cases in states that allow for medical marijuana, and to allow Colorado and Washington to move ahead with implementation of their new laws. He should ensure that federal appointees dealing with the issue, including U.S. Attorneys, are fair-minded.

And he should take the fight to Congress, where members of both parties might be able to find common ground. Obama can lead across party lines by seeking out libertarian members of the GOP to join him in crafting better drug policies. In fact, in May, Democratic Reps. Sam Farr (Calif.) and Maurice Hinchey (N.Y.) joined with Republican Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.) on a bill that would have cut federal funding for the Justice Department’s marijuana busts. And Senator Rand Paul recently indicated he might work with Democrat Pat Leahy to eliminate mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana possession.

Meanwhile, if left free of federal intrusion, Colorado and Washington might become a model for legalizing and taxing marijuana. If successful, the experiment could yield millions in tax revenues and drastically decrease incarceration rates, while giving members of Congress more incentive to change federal law. It could even help improve U.S. relations with Latin America, and help demilitarize our hemispheric policies with our closest neighbors, particularly Mexico. /---/

To be sure, Colorado and Washington are not the final battlefields of the war on drugs. Marijuana is not the sole drug behind our astounding incarceration rate for nonviolent drug-related crimes. We’re a long way from a just system that addresses drug use with treatment rather than punishment. Still, we might be one step closer to ending our failed attempt at marijuana prohibition, much as, in 1933, public opinion finally brought an end to alcohol prohibition.

ÜRO rahvusvahelise uimastikontrolli komitee INCB esimees anub USA föderaalametnikke, et need Washingtoni ja Colorado referendumitega vastu võetud legaliseerimisele kiiremas korras käpa ette paneksid. INCB-l mingisuguseid jõustamisvolitusi (õnneks?) pole. (ABC News <- AP)

The head of the U.N. drug watchdog agency is urging U.S. federal officials to challenge ballot measures in Colorado and Washington that decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and over.

Raymond Yans says the approvals send "a wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad."

Yans heads the International Narcotics Control Board. He told The Associated Press on Tuesday he hopes Attorney General Eric Holder "will take all the necessary measures" to ensure that marijuana possession and use remains illegal throughout the U.S.

Both states are holding off on plans to regulate and tax the drug while waiting to see whether the Justice Department will assert federal authority over drug law.

The INCB has no enforcement ability.

Brendan O'Neill mõlgutab The Daily Telegraphis teaduslike tõendite ja moraalsete imperatiivide vahelisest libadihhotoomiast.

Every policy, whether it’s on drugs, child-rearing or the environment, must, it seems, be based on the “best available evidence”. Professor David Nutt, who was Smith’s most senior scientific adviser, has in recent years become the walking, talking personification of modern society’s elevation of evidence above all else, particularly above such gubby matters as belief or ideology. And with excellent snootiness, as befits a leading member of the new priestly class of experts, Nutt said of Smith’s volte face on cannabis: “She, like most politicians, has the delusion that whatever they think is right. They lack all humility.”

Leaving aside the small matter of where a Prof who has spent the past few years hectoring evidence-ignoring politicians gets off talking about humility, there is a burning question few seem willing to ask: why should policy-making be based on evidence? Why should something like the right of people to take drugs, which touches upon amorphous, evidence-free things like liberty, morality and responsibility, be determined by the lab tests of men in white coats? Why is it any more right for a man of science to say “Yes, this drug may be permitted, but this one may not” than it is for a man of the cloth to say “Thou shalt not smoke dope”? The former’s pontification might be based in science, while the latter’s is based in religious considerations, but the end result of both are the same: tiny cliques of people conspire to deny everyday people the right to choose their vices on the basis that those vices might harm them either physically or spiritually. /---/

I say decriminalise all drugs, both those the expert councils judge harmful and those they judge unharmful, and let the public exercise their moral powers over the question of whether or not to consume them.

The Daily Telegraph vahendab uudist Hollandist, kust justiitsminister on teatanud kavast kohe keelustada kõik kanged kanepisordid.

Ivo Opstelten, Holland’s justice minister, has informed the Dutch parliament to set out a major rethink of the country’s liberal policy on soft drugs which allows cannabis to sold and smoked in specially licenced cafés or “coffee shops”.

He cited a government study that found that marijuana containing more than 15 per cent of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the psychoactive drug naturally occurring in cannabis, is so dangerous it should be classed alongside heroin and cocaine.

”Hard drugs have no place in the coffee shops and in the future they will only be able to offer cannabis with a THC level of below 15 per cent,” he told MPs. /---/

The decision to “quickly” ban strong cannabis will be a major blow to the country’s cannabis cafés because around 80 per cent of the marijuana sold is grown in the Netherlands has a THC content of between 15 and 18 per cent.

Mark Josemans, the spokesman for the Maastricht coffee shop owners association, accused the Dutch government of pushing cannabis users into the arms of illegal drugs dealers and compared strong marijuana to rum, a distilled alcohol that drinkers do not consume like beer.

”Weak weed in the coffee shops, strong weed on the streets - then the choice is pretty clear. It makes it harder for society,” he told the Volkskrant newspaper. “A user smokes less, just as people don’t drink rum out of a beer glass.”

ÜRO peaassamblee kiitis heaks Mehhiko ettepaneku kutsuda kokku erakorraline koosolek uimastiküsimuse arutamiseks. Viimati leidis taoline asi aset '98. aastal, 14 aastat tagasi. (DrugPolicy.org).

The 67 UN General Assembly unanimously adopted the resolution presented by Mexico on international cooperation on the global problem of drugs.

Ninety-five United Nations member countries sponsored the draft resolution including various countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and in the European Union, as well as Japan, China, Australia, and the United States.

The proposal of the President of Mexico had the support of the presidents of Guatemala, Colombia, Costa Rica, Belize and Honduras and was supported by the Ibero-American Summit, which recently took place in Cadiz.

The resolution incorporates the proposal of President Felipe Calderon, formulated during his speech in front of the UN General Assembly this September, on the necessity of holding a General Assembly Special Session to review current policies and strategies to confront the global drug problem. The session will take place at the beginning of 2016 after an intense preparatory process which will begin next year.

Mujalt uudiseid: UK-s on valitsuskomisjon nimega Home Affairs Select Committee pannud kokku põhjaliku ja tõesti üksikasjaliku raporti uimastipoliitika reformimise teemal. Sotsdemm Julian Huppert selgitab Guardianis, mis värk on.

Despite 50 years of criminalisation, illicit drugs are now the third most valuable industry in the world, after food and oil. Presidents of supply countries, such as Colombia, are desperately calling for a rethink.

We're stuck in a pointless "war on drugs". It's not working and it costs us heavily, in human terms – with people addicted, incarcerated and burgled – and in financial terms. The UK spends more on drug policy than any other country in Europe, but has the highest usage of several class A drugs.

Every person who uses drugs in Britain is treated in exactly the same way: as a criminal and a prisoner. Far too little effort and support is given to treatment; to helping people come off addictive drugs.

Ultimately, we are neither reducing harm, nor reducing demand. Thoughtless, ineffective and costly, drugs policy in this country and across the globe has been a complete shambles.

Today, the cross-party home affairs select committee publishes a report into drug policy. We have spent a year collecting and evaluating the evidence. Our findings are stark.

Täna jõustus kanepi legaliseerimise seadus Colorado osariigis, vahendab HuffPo. Tehti siuh-säuh ette teatamata ära, et rahvas ei jõuaks mingeid ühiskimumisi organiseerida nagu Washingtonis. Paaril aktivistil õnnestus siiski tekitada vabaduse lõhna.

Marijuana for recreational use became legal in Colorado Monday, when the governor took a purposely low-key procedural step of declaring the voter-approved change part of the state constitution.

Colorado became the second state after Washington to allow pot use without a doctor's recommendation. Both states prohibit public use of the drug, and commercial sales in Colorado and Washington won't be permitted until after regulations are written next year.

Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, opposed the measure but had no veto power over the voter-approved amendment to the state constitution.

Hickenlooper tweeted his declaration Monday and sent an executive order to reporters by email after the fact. He told reporters he didn't want to make a big deal about the proclamation, a decision that prevented a countdown to legalization as seen in Washington, where the law's supporters gathered to smoke in public to celebrate.

Fewer than two dozen people publicly marked Colorado's legalization day. A small group puffed away at 4:20 p.m. on the steps of the state Capitol, with no arrests and no police officers in sight.

"It smells like freedom," said a smiling, puffing Timothy Tipton, a longtime marijuana activist.

Ekspressis: kukesammul valgustatud uimastipoliitika poole

ÜRO 1961. aasta uimasti­konventsiooni aluseks olnud ideoloogia vaagub hinge, globaalne narko­sõja­masin poetab polte ning avalik arvamus liigub aina kiiremini paradigmamurrangu poole, kirjutab Mart Kalvet. /---/

Raske on aga reakodanikult eeldada mõistvat suhtumist juhutarvitajaisse või sõltuvushaigeisse, kui paljud Eesti apteekrid – kõrgharidusega meditsiiniala spetsialistid, keda ajakirjanduses levivad naeruväärsed müüdid ei tohiks eksitada – keelduvad uimastisüstijaile süstlaid müümast /---/

Olukorras, kus üheksa kümnest HIVi nakatumisest meie regioonis johtub kasutatud süstalde jagamisest, on säärane julm eeldamine kuritegu rahva tervise vastu.

Olukord pole siiski päris lootusetu. Tänavu käivitus naloksooniprogrammi pilootprojekt, mille raames jagatakse osale süstivatest uimastipruukijatest ja nende lähikondsetest opioidi-üledoosist päästvat odavat, ohutut ja tõhusat ravimit, mida seni käivad kogemata liiga suure annuse manustanuile süstimas kiirabibrigaadid – nimelt pole naloksoonile Eestis väljastatud müügiluba. Kui projekti saadab edu, on lootust, et naloksoon muutub siiski kättesaadavaks kõigile abivajajaile ning ogaralt suur uimastisuremus hakkab viimaks vähenema. /---/

Kahjuks ei mahu mõisted nagu “mõtestatud dekriminaliseerimine” või “uimastituru riiklik kontroll ja regulatsioon” veel ei meie koalitsiooni- ega opositsioonipoliitikute retoorikasse; lihtsam on jätta uimastiturg kurjategijate hallata, ajades otsusest johtuvad majanduslikud, demograafilised, tervishoiu-, keskkonna- ja julgeolekukatastroofid vastasleeri saamatuse süüks. Ning mitte miski peale rumaluse, hoolimatuse ja argpükslikkuse ei selgita, miks Eestis pole seni patsientidele kättesaadavaks tehtud ravikanepit, ehkki seadus seda lubab.

Olulist filmi kehtivast uimastipoliitikast näitab ETV "Välisilm" täna kell 22.10, kordusena teisipäeval 14.50.

ÜRO sanktsioneeritud sõda uimastite vastu on kestnud üle 40 aasta, sellele on kulutatud rohkem kui triljon dollarit, miljoneid inimesi on vangistatud ja tuhandeid tapetud. Ent milline on tulemus?

Illegaalse uimastiäri käive on 320 miljardit dollarit aastas. Uimastid on odavamad ja levinud laialdasemalt kui kunagi varem ning paljudes riikides on uimastikartellid muutunud peamiseks ohuks riiklikule julgeolekule.

See sõda on läbi kukkunud, kuid sellest rääkimine on olnud poliitiline tabu. Aga enam mitte, sest üha valjemalt on hakatud nõudma läbikukkunud poliitika muutmist.

Märgin igaks juhuks, et ei Hollandis ega ammugi mitte Portugalis pole isegi kanep legaalne, rääkimata muudest uimastitest. Ja Hollandi kanepituru probleemid johtuvadki suuresti sellest, et turg on hall, tarnimise poole pealt suisa must.

Mis probleeme Hollandis ja Portugalis Sa muidu täpsemalt silmas pidasid? Kui seal on juhtunud midagi drastilist, siis tahaks ka teada, muidu kiidan siin veel enda teadmata takka nurjunud algatustele...

Graafikuid on võimalik igasuguseid teha

Sooh? Väidan, et samade faktide alusel tegelikult ikka ei saa teha teineteisele vastukäivaid graafikuid. Või mida Sa silmas pidasid?

natuke uskumatu tundub jutt, et Hollandis suitsetatakse vähem kanepit kui Saksamaal või Prantsusmaal.

Miks? Eks need määrad on aastati natuke erinevad olnud, aga see väide peab paika küll. Nt 2009. aasta andmete kohaselt oli täiskasvanuid tarvitajaid Hollandis 5,4 protsenti, EU keskmine 6,8.

mind huvitaks ka teada, mis on need Hollandi kanepiprobleemid on? Need suurimad kanepiprobleemid olid eelmine aasta seotud kanepiostjate autode parkimiskorraldusega piirilinnades.
Empiiriliselt võin öelda, et AMS kesklinnast eemal ei märka pilves inimesi. Ainukesed on seal paarsada Briti või Kesk-Euroopa turisti, kes kaovad linnapealt ära juba varajastel õhtutundidel kuna on omadega väsinud.

Mind ehmatas Euroopas ära üks Hollandi noormees, pärit rikkast perest, "õppis" Belgias tasulises kõrgkoolis ja kes oli totaalne pot-head. Neil oli kodus kombeks koos vanematega hommikulauas koos kanepit suitsetada ja ta ei saanud aru, et tal a-sotsiaalsed ilmingud tekivad.

Ma kujutan ette, et sellist rumalat kontingenti, kes vastutustundetult suitsetavad, on seal veelgi.

Aga noh, alkohoolikute pärast ma kuiva seadust ei poolda, nii et väga nagu ei kobise. Filmi puhul oleks olnud aus lihtsalt seletada ka seda, et vabadusega kaasneb vastutus. Kui see oleks film alkoholi vabaturust siis oleks adekvaatne ka kl 4-sest vanalinnast läbi jalutada.

Kindlasti on. Nagu ka igal pool mujal. See on nagu suuresti uimastireformi pooldajate point — inimeste tarbimiskäitumist mõjutavad seadused väga vähe või üldse mitte (või isegi pöördvõrdeliselt). Seega pole keelamisele ja karistamisele keskendumine ennetuse, ravi ja hariduse arvelt kuidagi mõistlik.

Filmi puhul oleks olnud aus lihtsalt seletada ka seda, et vabadusega kaasneb vastutus. Kui see oleks film alkoholi vabaturust siis oleks adekvaatne ka kl 4-sest vanalinnast läbi jalutada.

Ma ei tea, mida Sa vabaturu all silmas pead täpselt, aga enamikus riikides pole alkoholiturg kindlasti vaba, vaid üsna rangelt reguleeritud. Alaealistele müük on keelatud, sageli ka avalikus kohas tarvitamine, piiranguid seatakse reklaamile ja müügikellaaegadele jne. Ning enamasti on sellised meetmed üsna tõhusad; kindlasti tõhusamad kui mittevägivaldsete tarvitajate tagaajamine ja puuritoppimine.

Uimastituru reguleerimine ja kontrollimine oleks riigist kindlasti vastutustundlikum kui praegune olukord, kus turu regulatsiooniga tegelevad kurjategijad.

Ma olen muidugi 100% nõus, et vabadusega kaasneb vastutus ning arvan, et iga uimastitarvitaja ja üldse iga kodanik peaks seda endale teadvustama, aga see polnud ju filmi teema. Igast seal tõstatatud väitest/faktist saaks teha põhjaliku ja huvitava kahetunnise doki. Tõdemus, et uimastite tarvitamisega kaasnevad ohud ja võimalikud soovimatud tagajärjed nii tarvitajale, tema lähedastele kui ühiskonnale laiemalt, paistis olevat võetud vaikimisi eelduseks, mitte ebaausalt maha vaikitud. Küsimus pole, kas uimastid on ohtlikud, vaid kuidas neid ohte võimalikult tõhusalt ennetada-vältida.

Sõitsin eile kodu ligidal olevast kanepikohvikust "Dreamland" mööda ja siis nägin kuidas seda materjali tuuakse sisse. Nad tohivad mingi reegli järgi hoida miski lollilt väikse koguse majas eks. Koguaeg käib varustaja peale laadimas siis.
Mingi maroko tüüp oli Ford Ka vms junniga. Taga pagassis oli selline nagu 60 x 70 cm läbipaistev tööriista karp karbikestega, kus erinevad asjad sees. Andis seal poemüüjale erinevatest karbikestest õiget asja.

Tänases Postimehes oli lahe uudis sellest, kuidas rootsi tollitöötajad "teadusliku huvi" ajendil tolli ruumides kanepit kasvatasid :) Huvitav, kuidas meie korrkaitse sellele reageerinud oleks...

natuke õhuke jää minu arvates:

The Norwegian government said on Friday it wants to decriminalize the inhalation of heroin, a method considered less dangerous than injecting it, to reduce the number of overdoses in the country.

Põhja prefektuuri narkokuritegude talituse juht Kaido Kõplas märkis, et pidev tänavamüügi tõkestamine, millele viimasel ajal aina enam rõhku pannakse, omab narkokuritegudega võitlemisel üht võtmerollidest. „Tänavadiilerite kinnipidamisega takistame narkootiliste ainete levikut ja uute narkosõltlaste pealekasvu. Lisaks viime kohtu ette neid, kes toidavad kuritegevust ja seda paraku teiste tervise arvelt,“ selgitas Kõplas.

teretulemast "vabaturumajandusse", kus on täpselt niipalju vabadust, kui valitsev gäng lubab. Stalin olevat ka midagi sarnast öelnud kunagi, et vabadus on nii tähtis asi - et seda tuleks ainult näpuotsaga anda.
