Seems the INCB takes its drug control policing role a little too fanatically and its service-for-the-benefit-of-citizen’s well-being spits in the face of science and proven harm reduction programs when it comes to the health of drug users.

In fact, it tries to pressure other UN organizations to get in line with its evidence-ignoring stance in rejecting harm reduction solutions.
