For Brazil, Decriminalizing Drugs Would Only Be a Partial Step Toward Justice

Decriminalizing drugs in Brazil would be a step forward for human rights, but the country still has to contend with its police.

Brazil’s Supreme Court justices are steadily issuing their votes in a seminal case that could determine whether or not the country will decriminalize the personal possession of drugs. Three of the 11 justices have voted in favor of decriminalization—two just for marijuana, one for all drugs—while a fourth last week gave himself more time to decide. Six votes are needed for decriminalization to succeed.

Brazilian Supreme Court Seriously Considering Decriminalizing Weed

Do Brazilian citizens have the right to consume drugs? That’s the question being considered by the Brazil's highest court in a case that has challenged the constitutionality of laws punishing drug consumption. Possession of marijuana, cocaine and other drugs is a crime in Brazil, even small amounts. In 2009, a man who was already in prison on a petty crime and an illegal firearms conviction was caught with a small quantity of marijuana, convicted and punished with an additional sentence.

Do Adults Have a Privacy Right to Use Drugs? Brazil’s Supreme Court Decides

The past decade has witnessed a remarkable transformation in the global debate over drug policy. As recently as the mid-2000s, drug legalization or even decriminalization was a fringe idea, something almost no politician would get near. That’s all changed. That the War on Drugs is a fundamental failure is a widely accepted fact among experts and even policymakers. Multiple nations no longer treat personal drug usage as a criminal problem but rather as one of public health. Many of them are actively considering following Portugal’s successful example of decriminalizing all drugs. The global trend is clearly toward abandoning prohibitionist policies.

5 Countries Where Marijuana is Cheapest and Most Expensive

If you are in the international market for marijuana, your legal options are limited. Though the cultivation of pot is widespread across the world, its legal status has only just begun to shift, with some countries choosing to decriminalize the substance and others loosening up enforcement regulations for users and growers.

The plant can grow just about anywhere, making it generally accessible to the global population, and, subsequently, one of the most commonly used illicit substances everywhere from the Americas to Europe. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, there are more than 177 million cannabis users globally.

Brazil's Pharmaceutical Market Value Will Approach $48B by 2020

The Brazilian pharmaceutical market will expand in value from $29.4 billion in 2014 to reach approximately $47.9 billion by 2020, representing a strong Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.5 percent, according to research and consulting firm GlobalData.

The company’s latest report states that Brazil’s increasingly elderly population, which will lead to a rising incidence of chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases, as well as the country’s robust investment in healthcare, will be key drivers of market growth during the forecast period.

The Brazilian pharmaceutical industry continues to prosper, primarily thanks to the country’s economic policies and reforms.
