Nicholas Kristof calls for a commission to study current drug policy (Drugs Won the War, New York Times Week in Review, June 14, 2009: 10). There is no need. In 1972 a Canadian Royal Commission on the non-medical use of drugs (Le Dain Commission) made its report (http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/ledain/ldctoc.html).
The Canadian Government ignored its findings. The US should ask the Canadian Embassy for a copy and fully implement its findings.
