Portugal

In 2001 the Portuguese drug legislation underwent a revolutionary transformation. The possession of narcotic drugs (from cannabis to opiates to LSD, cocaine or heroin) became a low-level offence punishable by fine or community service instead of imprisonment. And this policy has been bearing sweet fruits for the whole society since then. The number of drug users is not increasing, while the number of drug addicts infected with HIV and the number of deaths caused by heroin overdose is steadily dropping, and, at the same time, people’s interest in treatment is increasing.
