The Global Commission on Drug Policy was created in January 2011 by a group of personalities from the Americas and Europe, including former Heads of State and Government wishing to inspire better drug policy globally. Over almost 10 years now, membership grew to encompass Commissioners from around the world. Global leaders from the political, economic and cultural arenas, aware of the failure of the current drug control regime, felt that they must advocate for drug policies based on scientific evidence, human rights, public health, and security, leaving no-one behind.

Oh my god if the SPD were to rule Germany we'd be so damn lostxDxD they're not socialistic at all, they used to be a true people's party, but that was waaay back in the beginning... and unfortunately that's like 150 years ago lol. Nowadays they're just like every other lobbyist party with no interest in flattening social inequalities.

@Tim R At least you guys HAVE a Social Democratic party! Here is the United States we're forced to choose between the Conservatives and the centrist Liberals.

@Husseinisdoingfine What about people like Bernie? Isn't he somewhat socialistic?

I was not complaining about politicians, I was talking about political parties. I find it a shame that Social Democrats and centrist libs like Mike Bloomberg and Joe Biden have to share the same political party. In any other country, the Biden's would be in their own centrist lib party and the social democrats would have their own labor party.

@Husseinisdoingfine The confusion there comes from failing to make a distinction between personal racists view vs systemic racism.

When you saying, "I am racist" or "He is racist" most people intuitively take that to mean: he holds personal racists views, like a KKK member. Which is not at all what systemic racism is.

It would be a lot clearer instead to say: "I am part of a systemically racist system which I'm not doing much to reform."

Systemic racism as a concept needs to be spelled out much better to people because most people are not advanced enough to know what systems thinking is. So when they hear "systemic racism" they simply don't understand it.

I was talking to my family doctor the other week and despite being an educated MD, he did not understand what systemic racism is. He confused it with personal racism and denied it on those grounds. His reasoning was like this: "Well, I'm Indian with brown skin and no one has been personally racist to me in America. All my colleagues are nice to me. Therefore systemic racism is not real."

@Leo Gura

Can you make a video clearing up the confusion? Because I'm African American and don't understand "systemic racism".

Your answer, @Yali, of systemic racism is in the time-stamped debate video (till 1:34:20) of Vaush debating an African American Proud Boy.

I don't believe that crap. I don't see races all I see is people. Races are a figment of our imagination. That's bullshit.
