I think we've tried to allude to this already, myself and others around the video conference. I feel, and I think the evidence demonstrates, that there are significant harms associated with prohibition and that there is a good rationale for looking at drugs and drug use through a health lens rather than through the lens of criminal justice. We've heard that it creates all kinds of problems, cyclical problems, arrest-and-release cycles within the criminal justice arena. I think, in fact, what we're talking about is a multifactorial health issue. We would have greater success in creating a relationship and establishing effective roots through to prevention and treatment if we were to actually adopt a health approach to it.
I can say that there are other jurisdictions around the world that have taken this approach and have demonstrated great success. Portugal is one of them. They had significant issues with injection drug use in their population. In 2001, they decriminalized the personal use of all drugs, and 16, 17 years later they have significantly reduced the challenges they face with respect to drugs and drug use in their society. It's not perfect, but they're certainly going in a better direction than we are.
