Glassell III Postdoctoral Fellow in Drug Policy, said that while Molina has long talked about drug policy changes, this is the first concrete step he has taken to enact changes. Molina announced he would establish the commission at a recent speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.“Molina’s is the first government in the region to consider alternative drug policies, which makes this a significant event for regional drug policy,” Jones said. “The timing of the announcement also seems clearly linked to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s recent announcement of sentencing reforms for nonviolent drug offenders in the U.S. federal judicial system. Holder’s step may be a key contributing factor to emboldening drug policy reform throughout the Americas.”Jones noted that this fall, Uruguay’s Senate is set to vote on a broad measure to legalize marijuana.The Baker Institute has a radio and television studio available for media who want to schedule an interview with Jones.
