Argentina Federal Court Decriminalizes Cannabis (and Drug) Consumption

  • by Allen St. Pierre, NORML Executive Director April 23, 2008

    From the cato-at-liberty blog:

    This just in… A federal court in Argentina has decriminalized the personal consumption of drugs in that country. According to the court’s ruling, punishing drug users only “creates an avalanche of cases targeting consumers without climbing up in the ladder of [drug] trafficking.”

    Last month at a UN meeting in Vienna, Argentina’s Minister of Justice, Aníbal Fernández, said that the policy of punishing drug consumers was a “total failure.”

    Thanks to NORML Advisory Board member David Boaz for the tip.
