Call for improved drug treatment programmes in UK

1st March 2012

A United Nations narcotics expert has called for improved drug prevention and treatment programmes in the UK.

Professor Hamid Ghodse, president of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), likened the problem in some cities in this country to those experienced in countries such as Brazil or Mexico. He said there was a “vicious cycle of social exclusion and drugs problems and fractured communities” in cities across the world, including places such as Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester in the UK.
