US waves white flag in disastrous 'war on drugs'
Quote:US waves white flag in disastrous 'war on drugs'

After 40 years, Washington is quietly giving up on a futile battle that has spread corruption and destroyed thousands of lives

By Hugh O'Shaughnessy
Sunday, 17 January 2010

After 40 years of defeat and failure, America's "war on drugs" is being buried in the same fashion as it was born – amid bloodshed, confusion, corruption and scandal. US agents are being pulled from South America; Washington is putting its narcotics policy under review, and a newly confident region is no longer prepared to swallow its fatal Prohibition error. Indeed, after the expenditure of billions of dollars and the violent deaths of tens of thousands of people, a suitable epitaph for America's longest "war" may well be the plan, in Bolivia, for every family to be given the right to grow coca in its own backyard.

thanks for this great piece. I can't wait 'til I can go to my local coffee shop and order up a organic "pearl" strain sativa.

Indica highs are just too damned heavy.

Agreed.. Excellent post.. Thanks..

I've smoked Sativa, and loved it.. I've also smoked Purple Haze, White Widow, Thai Stick, Bubbles, Amnesia Haze, Regs, Zona, and maybe a few other Hydroponic Red-Hairy Frosty Green Strains.. Hash too.. Polm, Zero Polm, and maybe one other, but don't remember the name..

My favorite: White Widow.. Available at the Coffee Shop Blue White in Scaveningen, Holland (The Netherlands).. A few blocks away from the Bilderberg Hotel.. They sell White Widow for like €25 for 5 Grams (not positive on the price, but it's relatively cheap).. Cute girls there too..

Well at least Europeans get to hear about CIA drug running in a major newspaper. I'll believe the end of the drug war when I see it though.

I hate threads like this, it makes ConCen out to be a den of drug-addicts.
