    Superando el impasse

    En la última década ha crecido la polarización entre dos tendencias divergentes en la política global de drogas. Por un lado, el escalamiento de la Guerra a las drogas de EEUU, que ha creado un gulag de drogas doméstico y ha intensificado y militarizado  erradicaciones forzadas en otros países. Por otra parte, en Europa y otros países gana terreno un enfoque más flexible y pragmático para las políticas de drogas domésticas, que se distancia de la represión indiscriminada y la tolerancia cero. En estos países, la tendencia hacia una mayor indulgencia es irreversible, y una actitud racional reemplaza  gradualmente los dogmas del pasado. Estos enfoques han alcanzado sus límites legales en el marco de las convenciones sobre drogas de la ONU.

    The first major post-communist reform of Czech drug laws was completed as early as 1990. Among other legislative changes that were seen as returns to democratic and humanistic values, capital punishment and punishment for simple possession of illegal drugs were abolished. However, in 1997 a proposal was submitted to the Czech parliament that would re-introduce criminal penalties for drug users for possession of any amount of illegal drugs. The government subsequently submitted its own more modest proposal introducing criminalization of possession, but only for amounts that were "bigger than small", which was approved by parliament in April 1998.
