Despite Misgivings, UN Prepares to Perpetuate War on Drugs

Hosted by

Ten years ago, the United Nations launched a campaign to cut both the demand and the supply of illegal drugs. A report by the executive body of the European Union concludes it has made no difference at all. Nevertheless, it's expected that the program will be resumed for another ten years. The report was delivered as the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna prepares for a review. Luke Baker is senior correspondent for Reuters, based in London.
