Increase in penalties / Re-criminalization

Reports and Studies

09/27/11 | King County Bar Association: International Trends in Drug Policy

The report found that “the continued arrest, prosecution and incarceration of persons violating the drug laws has failed to reduce the chronic societal problem of drug abuse and its attendant public and economic costs. Further, the Task Force found that toughening drug-related penalties has not resulted in enhanced public safety nor has it deterred drug-related crime nor reduced recidivism by removing drug offenders from the community.”
