Poland: Shake Up for Poland's Drug Laws

Sat, 21 May 2011 07:00:00 GMT

Krakow Post, 21 May 2011 - Drug workers in Krakow have welcomed national moves towards a liberalisation of laws on possession, but warned that the government needed to clarify the new position and make further amendments to the law. The Polish parliament voted to allow public prosecutors to waive charges against anyone caught in possession of some banned substances, such as cannabis, as long as it was a first arrest, and it was a "small amount" for personal use. But the amendment also provided for tougher sentences for drug dealers.

Poland: Europe's East Sees AIDS On The March

Wed, 13 Jun 2001 07:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 13 Jun 2001 - DEBE, Poland, June 9 -- It did not seem pleasant for Krystyna Sokolowska to put her life on display -- the youthful year of heroin addiction that led to catching the virus that causes AIDS, to shuffling around homes for the infected that were never popular with scared neighbors. But she agreed to do so at a conference here as an early example of a trend that is alarming health officials in the region: How intravenous drug use is driving an epidemic of people becoming H.I.V. positive in Eastern Europe, and especially in the countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union. Nowhere else in the world is the virus that causes AIDS spreading so quickly, and this is the only place where the sharing of needles during drug use is the major route of infection, United Nations experts say.

Poland: Not Kids' Stuff

Sun, 09 May 1999 07:00:00 GMT

Warsaw Voice, 09 May 1999 - Schools have become for the drug dealer what the stock exchange is to the stockbroker; simply the place where business takes place. Teenage drug abuse doesn't hit the headlines. At the Education Ministry, it's an issue hidden shamefully in the bottom drawer. But the truth is brutal: in large cities, drug-free schools are very scarce, or perhaps non-existent.

Poland: LTE: Snuff Harmless, Govt Should Combat Marijuana

Sun, 02 Aug 1998 07:00:00 GMT

Warsaw Voice, 02 Aug 1998 - Dear Editor, I was amused to read an article in your newspaper about the recent law banning the production and sale of snuff (July 26, "A Punch in the Kashubian Nose"). It would seem harsh and unnecessary to criminalize the harmless traditional activity of a few elderly Kashubian men. I'm sure the perils of snuff are far lower than those of cheap fruit-flavored wines which are far more prevalent and popular among a certain class of adult male. Is the government doing anything about that?

Poland: Wheeling And Dealing Picks Up The Pace

Mon, 16 Feb 1998 08:00:00 GMT

Warsaw Voice, 16 Feb 1998 - Poland used to be only a route for drug smuggling from East to West. Now, however, it's a major cocaine and heroin market, too. Polish police officers have seized hundreds of kilograms of heroin in recent weeks, and 20 dealers and drug runners have been imprisoned. This proves that Poland-already known as a major amphetamine producer-has also become an important crossroads for cocaine and heroin smuggling.

Poland: Stopping Drug Traffickers

Sun, 10 Mar 1996 08:00:00 GMT

Warsaw Voice, 10 Mar 1996 - Police Hope to Make Hash of Smuggling The Ministry of Internal Affairs plans to set up a special bureau for combating drug trafficking and production. The Internal Affairs Ministry announcement of an anti-drugs task force comes on the heels of a Feb. 28 report by the United Nations' International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), which states that Poland and the Czech Republic are Central and Eastern Europe's leading producers of synthetic drugs.
