This is a very encouraging development; at least, it appears to be on the surface.
Here’s a quote from the below article that sums the shift in thinking:
“We will call for pragmatic and concrete criminal justice reform, areas such as alternatives to incarceration or drug courts, or sentencing reform,” Brownfield explained. “In other words, as President Obama has said many times publicly, to decriminalize much of basic behavior in drug consumption in order to focus scarce law enforcement resources on the greater challenge of the large transnational criminal organizations.”
Of course, in a truly honorable society, where the sovereignty of each being is acknowledged and maintained, no government would ever seek to prevent someone from consuming drugs, no matter how deleterious the effects might be. The inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ensures that no one can be told what to do with their own body, up to the point of harming on another.
