Defining Human Rights Abuses of Drug Users
If we look at the following UN document The Universal Declaration of Human Rights it can be seen plainly that drug users should have the same rights as any other person. The Articles of the declaration define those rights specifically. When drug using humans are incarcerated, tortured, or denied proper medical care for example, those are acts prohibited by the United Nations definition of human rights. There are millions of documented cases. The Drug User Rights Action Network will attempt to compile a database of public documents detailing these abuses.
