December 29, 2011

By Phillip Smith

Published on 29 December 2011  by encod
The new year is almost upon us and 2011 will soon be a year for the history books. But we can’t let it go without recognizing the biggest global drug policy stories of the year. From the horrors of the Mexican drug wars to the growing clamor over the failures of prohibition, from the poppy fields of Afghanistan and the Golden Triangle to the coca fields of the Andes, from European parliaments to Iranian gallows, drug prohibition and its consequences were big news this year. Of course, we (...)

HOW THE PENTAGON WILL PRIVATIZE THE WAR ON DRUGS

Selling the Drug War for $3 Billion?

In part of a move to transfer tactics from the "war on terror" to the "war on drugs", the Pentagon is paying private security firms millions to fight the drug war internationally.

Published on 26 December 2011  by encod
There is an increasing perception that the war on drugs is simply unwinnable. The scandalous death toll and socioeconomic impact so far suffered in the countries implicated either as producers or as transit routes has led to such assessment. Inadequate, inefficient combat strategies and a continuously renewed global net of corruption are part of the complex problem. Unlike terrorists or guerrilla groups, cartels are not motivated by ideology or ideals but rather by profit goals; and of (...)

16 December 2011

MEXICO CITY — Latin American leaders have joined together to condemn the U.S. government for soaring drug violence in their countries, blaming the United States for the transnational cartels that have grown rich and powerful smuggling dope north and guns south.

Published on 19 December 2011  by Martin Steldinger
Alongside official declarations, Latin American governments have expressed growing disgust for U.S. drug consumers — both the addict and the weekend recreational user heedless to the misery and destruction paid for their pleasures. “Our region is seriously threatened by organized crime, but there is very little responsibility taken by the drug-consuming countries,” Guatemala’s President Alvaro Colom said at a December meeting of Latin leaders in Caracas. Colom said the hemisphere was paying (...)

December 15, 2011

Published on 17 December 2011  by encod
AMSTERDAM — The conservative Dutch government said Thursday it is delaying plans to ban tourists from buying marijuana until at least May 2012, though it still intends to curtail the country’s famed tolerance policy. Cannabis is technically illegal in the Netherlands, but police turn a blind eye to possession of small amounts and it is sold openly in designated cafes known euphemistically as “coffee shops.” Large-scale growers are prosecuted. Among other measures, the Cabinet (...)
