Description: 1 online resource (25 pages) : colour illustrations
Contents: "The CDPC is committed to the position that Canada's drug laws and policies should be principled and based on public health principles and peer-reviewed evidence. They must also respect human rights. Drug laws and policies designed without these considerations will only continue to harm those who use drugs, their families and their communities. The most prominent feature of Canada's response to certain drugs over the last century has been a reliance on the criminal law, also called "prohibition." This has occurred despite a resounding lack of evidence to show that the criminal law reduces the harms associated with drugs and despite growing evidence that the criminal law in fact increases those harms. Nonetheless, the current federal government intends to rely even more heavily on a failed criminal justice approach. Its proposed drug legislation will impose harsher criminal penalties, including mandatory minimum sentences, for several activities relating to drugs. The CDPC is deeply opposed to this legislative approach and its accompanying policies." --
