The Drug War Undermines Security and Development - COUNT THE COSTS SERIES

Please watch and share the latest of our Count the Costs campaign movie serials!

Those countries where there is little economic infrastructure and the political system is instable are becoming havens for drug traffickers. For many decades, the United Nations has relied on the eradication of drug crops, interdiction of trafficking and strengthening the military and law enforcement agencies to fight this menace, but policies based on the prohibitionist drug conventions have led to disastrous consequences. The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) is one of the NGOs which have mounted a campaign to count the costs of the global drug war, that is, to urge governments to undertake a transparent review of current drug policies. With our "Count the Costs" movie series we are contributing to the campaign goals by highlighting the devastating negative effects of global prohibition.
