'Global' Scope

"Five countries have adopted strategies or action plans that have a ‘global’ scope, covering licit and illicit drugs and, in some cases, addictive behaviours. The broad approach is reflected in the policy document titles: Belgium’s ‘Comprehensive and integrated policy on drugs’; France’s ‘Governmental plan to fight drugs and drug addiction’; Germany’s ‘National strategy for drug and addiction policy’; Sweden’s ‘Cohesive strategy for alcohol, narcotic drugs, doping and tobacco (ANDT) policy’; and Norway’s ‘Action plan for the drugs and alcohol field’. With the exception of Norway, which has separate tobacco and gambling strategies, there are no separate national strategies for other licit drugs or addictive behaviours in these countries."
