Radio-ready: Drugreporter’s video advocacy team filmed key speeches and interviewed some of the participants at the UN's drug meeting in Vienna - please watch and share the movie! http://drogriporter.hu/en/cnd2016

Upcoming: April 19 to 21, the U.N. General Assembly and Special Session (UNGASS) will hold a meeting to talk about the problem of the War on Drugs. Human rights groups hope UNGASS will be an important opportunity to push the envelope, amending the United Nations Drug Treaties to safely regulate drugs, and to acknowledge and make visible the social and economic consequences of the War on Drugs. Such hopes were dashed at the annual narcotics meeting of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna in March. Drugreporter’s video advocacy team filmed key speeches and interviewed some of the participants at the UN's drug meeting in Vienna. In its secretive process, delegates created an outcome document that the General Assembly is expected to endorse at UNGASS this April. Excluded from the document are the words “harm reduction” and any reference to naloxone. Watch the film, "Governments Disagree Over Global Drug Control" at http://drogriporter.hu/en/cnd2016.
