Transform (UK) Creates Drug Policy Timeline

Submitted by Phillip Smith on
From Transform: Transform have produced a historical timeline, presented in tabular format, tracing the history of drug policy from 1800, to the present day. We have included the key legistlative and cultural events from the past 200 years that have brought us to the current point in policy development – illuminating the development of the ‘drug war’ and the more recent emergence of the reform movement. The timeline focuses on UK policy but also includes International developments at UN level, in the US and around the world. The timeline is online here: The timeline runs up to the present day, after which Transform have added a bit of crystal ball gazing – including a section that runs from 2007 to 2026, that charts our predictions for the progress of the reform movement. This document is a work in progress and we would welcome any contributions, corrections or suggestions. We would be grateful if you to circulate the link to colleagues in the field, include it in publication lists, newsletters, blogs or website link sections.
