Progressive Drug Policies in the Czech Republic

A new report of the OSF and a film of the HCLU shows a positive example on how science could contribute to progressive drug policies

The Open Society Foundation published a report on drug policies in the Czech Republic. The report shows how visionary policy-makers "have resisted what is politically easy and exemplified what is smart and humane in drug policy". The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) attended a conference in Prague two years ago and filmed several interviews on the same subject - we published it now as a supplementary material to the OSF report.

Get a penalty for doing your job!

Budai Gyula is a public employee in Ózd (town in Hungary). His job is to keep the recycling bins in order. He received a penalty for 10.000 HUF for scavenging, while he was doing his job. He acted correctly by not acknowledging his supposed offence by his signature. If he had done so, he could not argue against the decision. Do not sign anything if you have not committed what you’re being charged for!
