Scenarios for the Drug Problem in the Americas, 2013-2025
The second part of the OAS study is a scenarios report, which presents four possibilities for how drug policy could evolve in the Americas – and what results could be expected with each approach by 2025. Most of the scenarios break from the current U.S.-led drug war approach. The report is the first of its kind, providing a thoughtful and detailed visualization of alternatives to the existing drug prohibition regime. It is the first report by a major multilateral organization to consider legalization, decriminalization and other alternatives to prohibitionist policies on an equal footing with status quo policies.
