Agenda discussion of PL 7663/2010 which deals with the National Drug Policy
Second text processing user or drug addict should occur primarily in outpatient

The Plenary of the House of Representatives approved on Wednesday (22) Bill 7663/10 which changes the National Drug Policy (Sisnad) to set conditions of service to users, guidelines and funding of actions. Members still need to finish the vote of the highlights presented the proposal.

According to the text of the rapporteur, the treatment of user or drug addict should occur primarily in outpatient clinics, admitting hospitalization when authorized by a physician in health care or general hospitals with multidisciplinary teams.

Hospitalization may be voluntary or not. The involuntary depend request family or legal guardian or, failing this, the server's public health, welfare or public agency members of Sisnad.

This involuntary assessment will depend on the type of drug, its usage pattern and proof of the impossibility of use of alternative therapies. Compared to the first version of the substitute, the maximum time of involuntary hospitalization decreased from 180 to 90 days, but the family may request discontinuation of treatment anytime.

All admissions and higher should be reported to the Public Prosecutor, the Public Defender and other supervisory boards of Sisnad in 72 hours. The confidentiality of the data will be guaranteed.

The prediction of involuntary caused controversy in the plenary. The leader of the PSOL, Mr Ivan Valente (SP), said the measure is repressive, will not solve the problem of consumption and will encourage the family to be detained before, instead of dealing with the problem. "We advanced in anti asylum, where compulsory hospitalization precedes the analysis of a medical and now anyone familiar with the difficulty of dealing with the drug will involuntarily hospitalize a user without knowing whether it is effective."

Already the author of the project, Osmar Terra said text sights for users who are on the streets unable to rehabilitate. "These are people who have no family, sleep on the streets, lost everything and unable to work, living just waiting for the next 15 minutes to use the drug," he said.

Congressman Weliton Prado (PT-MG) also defended hospital. Today, families are desperate because they can not get a place for their children to intern. One of the most important points of this project is not just to wait years and years and months and months, a determination defended.

The rapporteur of the project, Givaldo Carimbão said that the text has as main target users of crack. Osmar Terra, in turn, noted that several Brazilian cities have called cracolândia, places where one buys and consumes the crack. We are dealing with people who are dying, consuming everything they have argued.

In discussing the matter, Givaldo Carimbão rejected the adoption of models from other countries where there is no consumption of crack. Brazil is the world's largest consumer of the drug, he said.

However, for the leader of PSOL, Ivan Valente, the project adopts misguided strategy to combat the problem, leaving a crackdown on drug cartels aside. In all countries where this line was adopted there was a failure. We must fight the drug cartels, and involuntary hospitalization may not be effective, he said.

Congressman Alfredo Sirkis (PV-RJ) said that the issue of drugs must pass from the sphere of health safety.

Warning labels <i> drink was removed from the project </ i>

Through highlighting the PR, the Plenary took the text to determine the labels of alcoholic beverages contained warning their misdeeds, according phrases established by the competent body. The message should have images illustrating its meaning. There were 169 votes against 149.

Despite the request of many parties to remove the device before the vote, the rapporteur was in the text because they believe in the use of the beverage association with the beginning of drug use ilícitas.Givaldo Carimbão also said that the alert messages were effective in the case cigarette. When this occurred with smoke, several people were clarified and stopped smoking, the same occurs in the drink.
