Interactive Map: International Drug Policy Developments of 2016

2016 has been a momentous year for international drug policy.

Evidence-based health-focused drug policies have been implemented or approved in a range of countries; France has seen its first legal drug consumption rooms, and the South African government has approved medical cannabis. However, the year has also seen some of the most repressive and violent drug policies in recent memory – most notably, the on-going mass slaughter of alleged drug offenders in the Philippines.

Use the interactive map below to explore some of this year's most significant developments in international drug policy.

Green icons denote developments that move towards an evidence-based approach

Red icons denote developments that move away from an evidence-based approach, or harms that have resulted from the lack of evidence-based policies
