Brasilien/Indien. Punishing Poverty: How the failed 'war on drugs' harms vulnerable communities - Case studies of Brazil and India

The failed ‘war on drugs’ causes a vicious cycle of poverty around the world, which targets the most marginalised and vulnerable in society. The people most affected are not those in charge of the drugs trade – instead, it’s those caught up at the lowest levels of the trade – a trade that is destroying their lives and communities, particularly in the global south.
