    10 မေလ 2013
    Other news

    El secretario general de la OEA, José Miguel Insulza, entregará el próximo viernes el estudio sobre drogas encargado por los presidentes del continente en abril de 2012, un "diagnóstico" sobre el problema con el que el organismo espera dar un impulso definitivo al debate sobre el tema. El documento consta de casi 400 páginas elaboradas por varios equipos en el último año, con un resultado "innovador" ya que en él "dice de forma muy precisa y clara cosas que no se habían dicho antes".

  3. In Latin America, U.S. focus shifts from drug war to economy

    04 မေလ 2013
    Other news

    Relationships with countries racked by drug violence and organized crime should focus more on economic development and less on the endless battles against drug traffickers and organized crime capos that have left few clear victors. The countries, Mexico in particular, need to set their own course on security, with the United States playing more of a backing role. That approach runs the risk of being seen as kowtowing to governments more concerned about their public image than the underlying problems tarnishing it.

    Legalize marijuana and other ways U.S.-Mexico can win drug war

    There was a lot of drug-war hand-wringing in the U.S. leading up to President Obama’s visit to Mexico. That’s because Mexican President Peña Nieto is in change-the-conversation mode: he wants Washington to focus less on his country’s awful drug violence – some 60,000 narco-related murders in the past seven years, with little sign of abating – and more on its robust economic potential. The fear in some Washington circles is that Peña Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which in its dictatorial 20th-century heyday was every drug lord’s cuate, or best buddy, is putting the fight against Mexico’s vicious cartels on the back burner.

    The drug policy reform agenda in the Americas

    • Coletta Youngers

    Latin America has emerged at the vanguard of efforts to promote debate on drug policy reform. For decades, Latin American governments largely followed the drug control policies and programs of Washington’s so-called war on drugs. Yet two parallel trends have resulted in a dramatic change in course: the emergence of left-wing governments that have challenged Washington’s historic patterns of unilateralism and interventionism and growing frustration with the failure of the prohibitionist drug control model put forward by the US government.

    La estrategia antidrogas de Washington para el próximo año abre una puerta que varios líderes de este lado del continente estaban tocando. Se centra en la descriminalización de los consumidores y en el énfasis de la prevención, un enfoque que podría impulsar reformas a nivel local. Gil Kerlikowske: “El mensaje principal es que nos estamos centrando por completo en un modelo de salud pública y la importancia de tratar a personas con problemas de drogas, porque no podemos solucionar este problema mediante arrestos ni mediante la legalización de las drogas”.

    Over the past several decades, Latin America has seen penalties for drug crimes—even low-level selling—skyrocket. And in many Latin American countries, non-violent drug offenses receive significantly longer sentences than many violent crimes, such as homicide and rape. A new study of criminal legislation explores this phenomenon in seven Latin American countries (Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, and Argentina).

    U.N. development chief flags failings of "war on drugs"

    14 မတ်လ 2013
    Other news

    There is increasing evidence that the war on drugs has failed, with criminalization often creating more problems than it solves, said Helen Clark, the head of the United Nations Development Program. Clark, a former New Zealand prime minister, said Latin American leaders should be encouraged to develop different policies to tackle the drug scourge. "I've been a health minister in my past and there's no doubt that the health position would be to treat the issue of drugs as primarily a health and social issue rather than a criminalized issue."

    Días antes de comenzar la Cumbre de las Américas en Cartagena en abril de 2012, el presidente de Guatemala, Otto Pérez, puso el dedo en la llaga: “Despenalizar el comercio de las drogas”. Su propuesta, apoyada por el presidente Juan Manuel Santos, fue llevada a la mesa de discusión del foro regional, pero hasta ahora Estados Unidos no ha cambiado de posición frente a su estrategia de lucha contra las drogas, la que según varios estudios no ha dado resultados.

    Guatemala proposes "alternative strategies for combating drugs"

    The Secretary General of the OAS highlighted the assignment received during the Sixth Summit of the Americas in 2012, which urged the OAS to analyze the results of drug policies in the Americas and to explore new approaches to strengthen these efforts and make them more effective. The Foreign Minister of Guatemala emphasized that, 50 years after signing the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, "the world starts the task of reflection and evaluation of what we have been doing and how we can achieve more effective results."

    El Secretario General de la OEA destacó el encargo recibido durante la VI Cumbre de las Américas, celebrada en 2012, que insta a la OEA a analizar los resultados de las políticas sobre drogas desarrolladas hasta ahora en las Américas. El informe resultante será presentado antes del final de marzo. El Canciller de Guatemala hizo hincapié en la importancia de que, a más de 50 años de la Convención Única de 1961 sobre estupefacientes “el mundo se aboque a la tarea de hacer una reflexión y evaluación de lo que hemos venido haciendo y de cómo podemos lograr resultados más efectivos”.

    The great experiment

    23 ဖေဖေါ်ဝါရီလ 2013
    Other news

    A whiff of change is in the air regarding drug control policy. Officials in two American states, Colorado and Washington, are pondering how to implement their voters’ decisions last November to legalise cannabis. One immediate consequence is that the United States will be in breach of the UN Convention. Good. It should now join Latin American governments in an effort to reform that outdated document to allow signatories room to experiment. Imposing a failed policy on everybody benefits nobody.

    German officials take a decidedly cool stance toward drug policy reform. No top politician with a major German party is about to call for a new drug policy or even the legalization of marijuana. Drugs are not a winning issue, because it's too easy to get burned. Germany lacks the political pressure to change. There were 986 drug-related deaths in Germany in 2011, the smallest number since 1988. Drug use is declining in all age groups. So why change anything?

    Guatemalan leader sees paradigm shift on drug policy

    Guatemalan President Otto Perez said he is feeling less alone in his drive to re-think the fight against drug-trafficking than a year ago, when he shocked fellow Central American leaders with a proposal to decriminalise drugs. Perez has proposed what he calls a "third way" in between all-out drugs legalisation and complete prohibition. He says the latter approach has failed as illegal drug use remains high despite decades of being outlawed around the world.

    As the underlying rationale for the war on drugs falls apart, some may wonder whether Latin America is really prepared to push back against Washington's militaristic approach toward marijuana trafficking. While such a prospect would have been unheard of just a few years ago, recent developments in the U.S. suggest that change could come fast at the hemispheric level. Indeed, successful pushes for marijuana legalization in Washington state and Colorado brought together some unusual political constituencies.

    George Soros has called for an end to the West's "war on drugs". Soros has thrown his weight behind a push by Guatemalan President Perez Molina, who recently declared that prohibition should be abandoned. Speaking at the World Economic Forum, Soros said that the narcotics trade threatened stability in many countries. President Molina said he would organise a meeting of Latin American leaders next June to discuss the issue. Costa Rica, Mexico and Colombia have opened talks with U.S. officials to prepare for the legalization of marijuana in some U.S. states, Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla declared.

    This is at the heart of the awakening in Latin America, a feeling that drugs prohibition has allowed rich and powerful cartels to rise to such prominence that they threaten the institutions of the state – the police, the judicial system, the army, the media, and the body politic. In Latin America it is not about rehab and criminality, it is about an existential threat to the state.
