Legal profiles describe national drug-related legislation in a standardised, comparable format. Topics covered include possession, trafficking, classification, prosecution, prevention, treatment, among others.
Each treatment profile provides information on the national context, treatment registries and monitoring systems, treatment demand, availability of treatment services as well as references and resources.
Each overview describes: the national context; references and resources; key responses for preventing and reducing drug-related infectious diseases and; drug-related deaths and drug-related harms in recreational settings.
These data sheets on drug-related public expenditure cover 30 countries and examine how much countries spend on drug-related activities, whether there are specific budgets allocated to drug policy documents, and how drug-related expenditure has evolved over time.
