British Medical Journal calls for legalisation of drugs

“Change is coming, and doctors should use their authority to lead calls for pragmatic reform informed by science and ethics.​ It said the ban on the production, supply, possession and use of some drugs for non-medical purposes was causing huge harm. “There is an imperative to investigate more effective alternatives to criminalisation of drug use and supply,” the BMJ said in an editorial.

The British Medical Journal has called for the legalisation of illicit drugs for the first time.​ Prohibition laws have failed to curb either supply or demand, reduce addiction, cut violence or reduce profits for organised crime, the journal argued, saying the so-called ‘War on Drugs’ had been a failure.
