Drug laws are different around the world, in some places possessing an illegal drug could land you the death penalty. Portugal decriminalised drug use back in 2001 and since then rates of overdose deaths, HIV and addiction have plummeted. There’s also been a massive reduction in the number of prisoners clogging up the prison system as users are offered rehabilitation instead of jail time. What do you think LiveTribers, should Australia follow suit and decriminalise drug use? Do you think it would have a positive impact on the country as a whole? Or do you think drug use should remain a criminal offence?
