Taylor & Hallam on the UNODC World Drug Report

Dave Bewley Taylor and Christopher Hallam (International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC) and International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC)) have posted IDPC Response to the UNODC World Drug Report 2012 on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

26 June 2012 saw the launch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)’s flagship publication, the World Drug Report. 

This IDPC response provides an overview of the data and topics presented in the Report and where appropriate, within the broader context of the current state of the UN drug control framework, offer a critical analysis of both.
