End the War on Drugs! - Avaaz Petition


To Ban Ki-moon and all Heads of State:

    We call on you to end the war on drugs and the prohibition regime, and move towards a system based on decriminalisation, regulation, public health and education. This 50 year old policy has failed, fuels violent organised crime, devastates lives and is costing billions. It is time for a humane and effective approach.
