In fact, HRW's report calls on the Georgian government to focus on effective public health measures. It shows the damage associated with drug abuse and addiction for the users. HRW emphasizes that: "this is not a call for legalization, as drug consumption and possession for personal use could remain an administrative offense that trigger administrative penalties, such as fines".
