COSTA AND HIS NGO CRITIQUES an HCLU film 51st Session of the UN Comission on Narcotic Drugs - Vienna, March 2008 OPENING SESSION 10 March 2008 - Vienna Ladies and gentlemen. I believe we face a sort of an immense problem. Hardly a week goes by without another critique on our drug control efforts. Concern is manifested to me here in Vienna as much as when I am on missions in remote locations. Wide media reporting expresses equal apprehensions about the status quo. Namely: too much crime and too much drug money ??????? around the world. Too many people in prisons, and too few in health services. Too few resources in prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Too much eradication of drug ???? and not enough eradication of ????. As a result, we all, the United Nations and member states are criticized for falling short of lofty ideas of a safer, healthier and more adjusted world. I hear these messages, and i say I have some sympathy for them, but of course they represent only part of the story. What many people do not see and perhaps intentionally fail to recognize, are the achievements of the drug control system over the last century and the improvements of the last decade. Well, I think that was a very smart speech of Mr. Costa, because I think it recognized the criticisms, and I think it's important he clearly has heard the information, he has clearly heard the critique, Which I think is a good thing. I did see quite a lot of positive points in his speech, I think it was one of the best speeches I've heard since he has been Executive Director. He was quite explicit on a number of issues, he said directly that he thought there were too many people in prison, that there was too much eradication going on without alternatives in place for the farmers (?). aaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccc dddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccc dddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccccccc ddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb cccccccccccccccccccc aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccccccccc dddddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb ccccccccccccccccccc ddddddddddddddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a felirat a GreenSheep civil kezdeményezés keretein belül született meg - 2008
