Brazil To Decriminalize Drug Use On November 24

Brazil To Decriminalize Drug
Use On November 24
President Lula To Sign Drug Decriminalization Decree
From Alberto M. Giordano
narconews@hotmail.com
11-17-4


Weeks after some punishing setbacks for the government of Brazilian President Lula da Silva, with his Worker's Party losing three of the flagship cities in the world for Harm Reduction policies toward drug users (S?o Paulo, Porto Alegre, and Curitiba), the Lula administration has finally decided to make the groundbreaking local policies go national.

According to a report in today's Folha de S?o Paulo (subscription only), Lula's government of has reached a "consensus" to step forward into a bold new era of drug policy: decriminalizing the drug user nationwide, and opening 250 safe drug use centers across the country during the year 2005.

Lula is expected to sign an executive decree on November 24, taking drug enforcement responsibilities away from police agencies, and placing the problems of drug use under the jurisdiction of the Health Ministry, which will be charged with supporting the safe drug-use centers and make Harm Reduction - a policy to reduce the harms associated with drug use - the law of the land.

Here is an excerpt from today's report from Brazil's largest daily newspaper:

"Policy proposal considers drug consumption as a public health problem, and no longer one for the police. The government wants to create centers for drug use."

"By Luciana Constantino and Luri Dantas Folha de S?o Paulo - Bras?lia Bureau

"After a series of internal disagreements about drug policy, the federal government is preparing a realignment of national policy to define drug consumption as a public health problem, and not one for the police as it is today.

"There will be a presidential order creating rules for treating drug dependents, with emphasis on Harm Reduction..."

That is awesome news

If they set up shops like the Netherlands has, it will also boost their economy and tourism I bet.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

today is the great day. many have been waiting. many are still in the shadow of ignorance in Brazil.
if it follows, it shall be greatly comemorated by all Brazilian stoners.
the dealers even have set a 'drug drought' in a sort of protest...

i find it a great evolution by part of a 'developing' country to adopt this  rather european model, in the counterhand of the American model, but i also find it a bit foolish at the same time (it could only have been Lula, the drunkard)...

i am foreseing an explosion in violence, specially in Rio, because if it goes like Lula wants, the dealers will have to find another source of income...
(oh i forgot. the cops will stay furious without their bribe).


DECRIMINALIZE! LEGALIZE IT ALL LULA!

Brazil isnt really all that underdeveloped as some might think.  They are also pushing environmental standards as well :thumbup:

I am a bit afraid of flying into the US (you know, Osama has many friends there) but WTF? Anything for my shroomerite fellows! Just give me 5 minutes and I'll steal a Concorde plane here... LOLz...
Ah, anyways...
We'll know only tomorrow when the official publication comes out... (If...?)...
This wait kills me. I already have the land. The rocking chair. And the rifle.

Er, sorry about the poor joke, it was meant to be an internal joke to Josh (whose afraid of driving his car into Brazil!)...

Anyways, just an update.
It's a melting morning and nothing has changed. The gov't site went down, probably out of so many queries.
The only thing that is for sure is that the project is to be implemented for the next year but anyways, it should already be signed...
I hope the dark forces do not to spoil the whole thing...
If anyone knows of anything I don't...!
