Truth to Power

Gee, what a surprise

America’s drug plan collapses in chaos

Washington’s “war on drugs” in Colombia is collapsing in chaos and corruption, and the drug producers are winning. The so-called Plan Colombia, which has cost the US more than $3bn (#1.6bn) in the past five years, is being abandoned, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has announced.

Stunned, I am. Yet another tact in the “war on drugs” (in quotes because no such thing exists, other than in the minds of corrupt pols and the imprisonment industry) fails, as expected.

Legalize drugs, and let Darwin take over.
