Drugs, our community, your say - the [UK] consultation con
"Drugs, the consultation con" had its parallel in New Zealand when the Ministry of Health revisited the "national drug policy" for its ten year review. It was described by one addiction specialist attending, and member of our Expert Advisory Commitee on Drugs (EACD) as an "embarrasment to the Ministry".
It was conducted as if there was no views in dissent with the policy base despite it diverging from the policy development documents that precedded its application (now) 12 years ago.
It was a case of evidence base fits the politics… now where have I heard that recently?
