Smart Law Enforcement Responses
The prohibition of drugs, as a public policy, is a wrongheaded answer that does not resolve the structural problems that give rise to drug trafficking, and it exacerbates the vulnerabilities of numerous groups. We work to progressively substitute the State’s criminal justice response to the problem of drugs and, instead, propose an answer based on public health, human development, and attention to vulnerable populations.
Public Health & Human Rights
Public policies to attend to problems that arise from the consumption of psychoactive substances, as well as mechanisms for the eradication of illegal crops, must have a perspective of respect for the public health and human rights of the people who consume and produce these substances.
Peace Agreement & Drug Policy
In the context of the implementation of the Peace Agreement between the Colombian Government and the FARC-EP, we work to ensure an adequate implementation of the policies agreed to in that document, respecting the human rights of producers, and favoring the construction of a stable and lasting peace.
