The UN on Drugs: Trends in 2013

Our movie gives you an insight of the 2013 trends of international drug control policies

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) is the leading decision making body of the United Nations on drug policy issues. The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) attended its 2013 annual meeting in Vienna. We interviewed key decision makers and professionals to map the new trends in international drug control. You can learn about the innovative approach of New Zealand to new psychoactive drugs (“legal highs”), the views of the head of the UN agency on drugs on the legalization of marijuana in two US states, the speech of the Bolivian president and the new marijuana regulation scheme of the government of Uruguay. Please watch and share our film!
