The authors would like to draw attention to the following article:
Hughes CE, Stevens A. A resounding success or a disastrous failure: Re-examining the interpretation of evidence on the Portuguese decriminalisation of illicit drugs. Drug Alcohol Rev 2012;31:101-13.
In the above paper, we stated that a report from the US Office for National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) ‘does not appear on the ONDCP website and the only source we could find is Dr Pinto Coelho himself’. We sincerely apologise if this was taken to believe this was not a real report of the ONDCP. We would not have cited it, or called it an instructive example for the AOD field, if this was the case. We only meant to report that we, and others at the time, could not find the source on the ONDCP website or in the broader public domain.
Dr Coelho has informed Drug and Alcohol Review that the report is available on the ONDCP website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/ondcp/Fact_Sheets/portugal_fact_sheet_8-25-10.pdf.
We are happy to correct that in our paper and we apologise for any confusion caused to Dr Coelho or other readers.
