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.

The horse-dealing policeman

József was fined for 30.000 forints for a minor offence. He did not pay, because he had nothing to pay with. 3-4 days later, a policaman came, and told him that if he does not pay the fine, he has to go to prison. József then called to his neighbor, to tell him his horse was for sale. The policeman told him he shouldn’t sell the horse to the neighbor, and brought over his own friend, who was there in 10 minutes and took the horse worth 100 thousand for 30.500.
