DRUG ADDICTION, CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Objectives of the course
Almost all the major dilemmas of criminal policy surface rather
acutely in combating drug addiction and trafficking through the legal order.
The issue of interaction between drug abuse and criminality of quite
complex. At least three important questions have been recently identified as
crucial for comparative research. First, to what extent drug dependence
contributes to criminal behviour? Secondly, in what ways do criminal
behaviour patterns determine drug abuse? Third, are there any common
factors which ontribute to the determination of both drug abuse and criminal
behviour?
Apart from these causal issues, there is the board questions of the
social costs benefits of criminalization of addictive behaviour. Should
drug taking remain in the category of "crime without victims?" or should it
be viewed as posing an ever growing threat to human resource development
and be subjected to state control, over individual choices as to survival and
life styles?
The problems here are not merely ideological or theoretical. User to
drugs for personal, non therapeutic purposes may well be linked with
international trafficking in psychotropic substance. It has even been
suggested that encouragement of drug dependency may have, in addition to
motivation of high profits, politically subversive aspects.

Assuming that both addiction and trafficking have to be regulated,
what penal policies should be appropriate? What human rights costs in the
administration of criminal justice should be considered acceptable? The
international response to these questions is indicated by
the Single convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, adopted in New
York, 30 March 1961 and as amended by 1972 Protocol in
Geneva, 25 March 1972 and
the Convention on Psychotropic substances, adopted in Vienna,
21 February; 1971.
India has adopted the basic principles of these conventions in the Narcotic
Drugs an Psychotropic Substances Act, 1986.
Broadly, penal policy dilemmas here relate to :
(a) management of sanctions relating to production, distribution
and illICIt commerce in Narcotic Substances and,
(b) way of prevention of abuse of drugs, including speedy
diagnosis, treatment, correction, aftercare, rehabilitation, and
realization of persons affected.
Important problems of method in studying the impact of regulation
need evaluated at every stage.
The following syllabus prepared with this perspective will be spread
over a period of one year.
