U.S. Faces Challenge to “Drug War” as Latin American Countries Mull Decriminalization, Legalization

Ethan Nadelman of the Drug Policy Alliance provides a diplomatic and (to me what seems overly) praise-laden overview of the Obama Administration’s promotion of ‘drug war’ policy. He does declare Obama Administration has shown a failure of leadership in challenging the orthodoxy which is supporting a failed policy. And that “(t)he failure of the U.S. global prohibitionist policy goes back many, many decades. It’s wreaked havoc in the region. And people know it, and they’re finally getting the guts to say the emperor has no new clothes. . .that the U.S. policy cannot be defended on economic grounds, on security grounds, on scientific grounds, or on ethical grounds.”

Unfortunately, Obama is on the same side of the fence as Bush for militarized non-solutions that have spread suffering across the hemisphere. Let’s not support advocates of failed policies!

Yes, we can!
