The study found that Latin American governments’ approach to drug use continues to be predominantly through the criminal justice system, not health institutions.

    Other news

    When the law on medical marihuana came into force in February of last year it seemed that the way was now open for patients suffering from cancer, multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases to use the drug under medical supervision without having to acquire it secretly in violation of the law.
