On 22 June 2021, the Global Commission on Drug Policy organizes the online event “Drug Policies and Cities Governments”.

The issue of drugs requires a coordinated and holistic response. But who are the main actors to discuss the health, security and social challenges posed by these drug-related issues? What are the potential solutions?

The international event will gather Mayors from different cities from all regions of the world, as well as experts, to discuss drug policy at the municipal level.
