That's according to Kasia Malinowska, Director of the Global Drug Policy program for Open Society Foundations.

Ms. Malinowska was a panelist on Monday at a meeting leading up to the General Assembly's Special Session on the World Drug Problem (UNGASS).

She spoke to Janie Cangelosi about global trends in drug policy.
