    John Walsh
    14 ဧပြီလ 2012

    santos-moralesLa región andina ha sido uno de los escenarios centrales de la “guerra contra la droga” cuyo énfasis principal son las medidas para controlar la oferta. Los esfuerzos respaldados por Estados Unidos para eliminar la oferta en la fuente — los cultivos de la planta de coca y la refinación de la cocaína — han sido un componente fundamental de esta larga guerra contra la droga, durante más de un cuarto de siglo.

    Present international drug control policies are deeply-rooted and change will no doubt come slowly. However, as a result of the Cartagena summit, for the first time a meaningful debate on developing and implementing drug control policies that are more humane and effective is underway. The genie is out and will be very hard to put back in the bottle, as much as U.S. officials might try.

    dlr21sEl debate político sobre las drogas en Amé­rica Latina está dando pasos notorios. Los cambios legislativos que están introdu­ciendo varios de los países de la región revelan tam­bién una tendencia innegable a alejarse de la “guerra contra las drogas”.

  4. Biggest blow to Mexico drug cartels? It could be on your state ballot

    Over the past year, the world has eyed Latin America as it has forged forward, in both policy and politics, with a rethink of the “war on drugs.” (See our recent cover story on “Latin America reinventing the war on drugs” here.) But tomorrow, the world will be watching the United States, the birthplace of the “war on drugs,” as three states vote on legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.

  5. U.S. marijuana vote may have snowball effect in Latin America

    Article

    Voters in Colorado and Washington state who approved the recreational use of marijuana Tuesday sent a salvo from the ballot box that will ricochet around Latin America, a region that's faced decades of bloodshed from the U.S.-led war on drugs. Experts said the moves were likely to give momentum to countries such as Uruguay that are marching toward legalization, to undercut Mexican criminal gangs and to embolden those who demand greater debate about how to combat illegal substances.

    Colorado y Washington regularizaron el mercado de marihuana y abrieron grandes desafíos para el presidente estadounidense Barack Obama, así como para los gobiernos de América Latina que hasta hoy lideraban la discusión sobre la legalización de la droga.

    La voluntad de los electores

    12 နိုဝင်ဘာလ 2012

    yes-ballot2012Ahora que los votantes en los estados de Colorado y Washington han aprobado iniciativas para la legalización de la marihuana, la atención se ha volcado repentinamente hacia preguntas sobre la implementación de esta medida —y, en particular, hacia especulaciones sobre cómo podría reaccionar el gobierno federal. Ello es totalmente comprensible, pues no es un secreto que las recientemente aprobadas iniciativas estatales entran en conflicto con la ley federal.

    The drug policy reform agenda in the Americas

    • Coletta Youngers
    30 ဧပြီလ 2013

    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.

    The drug policy reform agenda in the Americas (Version 2)

    • Coletta Youngers

    At the root of the drug policy debate in Latin America is growing recognition that present policies have failed to achieve the desired objectives, the extremely high costs of implementing those policies paid by Latin American countries, and the need to place higher priority on reducing unacceptably high levels of violence. Of particular concern is the spread of organized crime and the resulting violence, corruption and erosion of democratic institutions.

  10. Reimagining Drug Policy in the Americas

    27 ဇွန်လ 2014

    Latin America is now at the vanguard of international efforts to promote drug policy reform: Bolivia has rewritten its constitution to recognize the right to use the coca leaf for traditional and legal purposes, Uruguay has become the first nation in the world to adopt a legal, regulated Cannabis market, and Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, and Ecuador are openly critiquing the prevailing international drug control paradigm at the UN. And now with the United States itself relaxing its marijuana laws state by state, the U.S. prohibitionist drug war strategies are losing credibility in the region.

     

  11. The United States rethinks draconian drug sentencing policies

    • Elizabeth Lincoln
    27 ဇန်နဝါရီလ 2015

    Across the Americas, an unprecedented debate on drug policy reform is underway. While a regional consensus on what form those reforms should take remains elusive, there are at least two issues where consensus is growing: the need to address drug use as a public health, rather than criminal, issue and the need to promote alternatives to incarceration for low-level, nonviolent drug offenders and ensure proportionality in sentencing for drug-related crimes. Draconian drug laws were often adopted in Latin American countries with the encouragement – if not outright diplomatic, political and economic pressure – from the U.S. government.
