What can be learnt from Portugal's decriminalisation of drugs

(13:06) Portugal decriminalised drug possession and consumption in 2001. It did not legalise supply. Virgin boss Richard Branson argues that the Portuguese "experiment" has worked well, but his statistics are disputed. According to a Portuguese citizen, crime has increased, but because of their severe economic crisis, not drug decriminalisation.

Latest comment: What you get is a minor sitting in a parked van directly outside the main Police station in Lisbon being offered coke (not the drink) while his parents are inside reporting a break-in on the van whilst it was parked in full view of an on-duty policeman. Don't go to Lisbon under your own steam it isn't worth the risk.
