ENACT report on drugs policy in South Africa

ENACT, an organisation that aims to support Africa’s response to organised crime, has published a report on drug policy in South Africa. The report is critical of current prohibitionist and criminal justice measures claiming that they have failed to prevent drugs becoming readily available. The report also outlines the high costs of enforcing such policies though court and criminal justice systems. ENACT concedes that any changes to the current approach are unlikely to be implemented quickly and will involve long-term cultural changes.
