Argentina statement on demand reduction

Argentina’s national plan is based on preventive policy focusing on the family community, the school community and the workplace community.

There are high levels of cannabis use (6.9% of the population has used cannabis in last 12 months). Cocaine is second only to the US in cocaine consumption. Paco (coca paste) also a problem. It is inexpensive (30 cents per dose) and used by the poorest members of society.

Argentina is concerned of use of harm reduction as a ‘political football’ at CND.
