Health Poverty Action has launched a report calling for the global development sector to rethink its approach to the failing War on Drugs.
Entitled ‘Casualties of War: How the War on Drugs is harming the world’s poorest’, the report emphasises how drugs policy is very much a development issue.
Since the mid-twentieth century, global drug policy has been dominated by strict prohibition, which tries to force people to stop possessing, using and producing drugs by making them illegal.

Prosecutor could not be from the same city as the police involved
Rob Duke's insight:
This is a bad idea; but not for the reasons you might think I'd make:
1. Prosecutors are closely associated with the police and may lack legitimacy in the community; and
2. Prosecutors are elected or appointed, often with an expectation of limited tenure and hopes of advancing to higher office.
Given this, prosecutors are not the best choice. Instead, I'd advocate Seattle's idea of appointing special judges (often retired) to investigate officer involved homicides. It would not be difficult to advance this idea to include all serious allegations of corruption and use of force.
See also the French model of investigative judges (IJ) that accompany the police in all major investigations. The inquisitorial approach of that system may be advantageous for this area of law. If the IJ was charged with finding truth (to the greatest extent possible) first and foremost, then you might see great buy-in by both the community and the police.....
