The war on drugs has failed. Now we need a more humane strategy is a strong advocacy article by Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil, wherein he argues the case for a new global drug policy towards decriminalisation and promoting harm reduction.


The Guardian is one of England’s most well-respected newspapers. It is similar in status to the New York Times in the United States. Over the past several decades The Guardian has run numerous features questioning the “war on drugs”. The paper continued its call for a change in drug policy in its editorial of September 6, 2009 entitled Prohibition’s failed. Time for a new drugs policy

Also in the same edition of The Guardian are a two more articles that provide further evidence and clear rationale that the time for change is long due and that change is happening now in several countries, particularly in Latin America.

Hardline war on drugs has failed
