Prohibition has been the most widely used drug policy around the world. However, its effects on mass incarceration and strengthening of law-enforcement agencies, as well as its inefficiency in curbing the use and trafficking of drugs, have demanded the adoption of alternative policies by different countries. While in Brazil the demand for punishment increases, it is necessary to analyze the alternatives that have been adopted by other countries, its positive aspects and obstacles encountered. Thus, this article analyzes four models of alternative policies: the cannabis social clubs, the Uruguay experience with legalization, the tolerance practice in the Netherlands and, finally, the decriminalization operated in Portugal.
