This seminar saw the launch of the Beckley Foundation’s Global Cannabis Commission Report on the first day, and a high-level review of preparations for the UNGASS Review of Global Drug Policy in 2009 on the second. It was attended by a select group of experts, academics and policymakers from around the world, including representatives from the UN, EU and WHO.
The Cannabis Commission Report has been authored by a group of the world’s leading drug policy analysts. The seminar’s first day saw these authors present their findings to the public, followed by further presentations on, and a wider discussion of the cannabis issue. The second day involved presentations on some of the high-level policy reports that would help inform policymakers in the build up to and during the UNGASS review. This was followed by a debate on the position Europe should take in this UNGASS review.
