Decriminalize All Drugs?

Toronto’s board of health has agreed to call on Ottawa to decriminalize all drugs for personal use.

The board’s decision follows a report from the city’s medical officer of health, who said drug use should be treated as a public health issue, not a criminal one.

Doctor Eileen de Villa says her report was triggered by the ongoing opioid problem.

There were just over 300 opioid overdose related deaths in Toronto last year, which the report says was a 63 per cent increase from the previous year.
