    Grenada: National Anti-Drug Strategy, 2012 to 2017

    NCODC. National Council of Drug Control (Granada)

    The National Anti-Drug Strategy 2012 to 2017 is the blueprint of the Government of Grenada’s responses to the drug phenomena. It outlines all national concerns in drug control. It articulates national policies, define priorities, and apportion responsibilities for drug control efforts. All national concerns in drug control are outlined in a comprehensive manner and structured in a logical framework by analyzing the countryspecific drug problems through the use of statistical data, assessing the activities carried out until now, and identifying what needs to be undertaken during a specific period to attain the objectives agreed upon.

    UK's Prison Drugs Strategy

    MOJ. Ministry of Justice (Reino Unido)

    The UK's Prison Drugs Strategy sets out the ambition to tackle drugs by restricting supply, reducing demand and building recovery. This mirrors the 3 strands of the HM Government Drug Strategy and, through a comprehensive approach, offers the best opportunity to reduce the levels of drug misuse in prisons.

    The central elements of the strategy are:

    • Restricting the supply of drugs by improving security, building intelligence, and targeting the criminal networks which aim to bring drugs into prison.
    • Reducing the demand for drugs in prison by developing more meaningful regimes, providing more constructive ways for prisoners to spend their time and ensuring the balance of incentives encourages prisoners to make the right choices.
    • Working closely with health and justice partners to build recovery for prisoners who want to overcome their substance misuse, providing prisoners who are serious about living substance free with the environment to do so successfully and enable NHS England to deliver person-centred service
