5. Restate the fight against drugs. In terms of narcotics, the prohibitionist strategy is already unsustainable, not only because of the violence it has generated but because of its poor public health results: in most of the countries where it has been applied, this strategy has not been translated in a reduction of consumption. Worse yet, the prohibitionist model inevitably criminalizes consumers and reduces their chances of social reintegration and rehabilitation. The "war on drugs" has escalated the public health problem posed by currently banned substances to a public safety crisis. The alternative is for the State to renounce the claim of combating addictions by prohibiting the substances that generate them and dedicate itself to keeping under control those who already suffer from them through clinical monitoring and the supply of prescription doses to, in a second step, offering personalized detoxification treatments and under medical supervision. The only real possibility of reducing the levels of drug consumption is to lift the ban on those that are currently illegal and redirect the resources currently destined to combat their transfer and apply them in programs - massive, but personalized - of reinsertion and detoxification. This should be pursued in a negotiated manner, both in the bilateral relationship with the United States and in the multilateral sphere, within the UN.
