Could Marijuana Become Legal This Year? Several States Say 'Yes'
US War on Drugs Moves to Africa
The U.S. government is so impressed with its stunning drug war failures in Latin America that it’s planning on exporting their tactics even farther afield, to the continent of Africa.
This is quite a policy change from the ones President Obama espoused as a candidate. Now at The White House it seems as though the focus is shifting away from the War on Terror and toward the War on Drugs. And the war is expanding from Latin America to Africa, both locales emerging as powerful hubs for drug cartels.
And it will continue to expand as the U.S. fights an unwinnable war. Inflated drug profits caused by prohibition will ensure a never-ending supply of people entering the black market to sell.
I’m sure an increased military presence is very tempting to the military-industrial complex; it means even bigger budgets for defense spending, more power and influence, and the appearance of fighting crime when all they are really doing is wasting money on expensive toys.
Many are disappointed in President Obama and his willingness to turn his back on the things he said in the past and embrace the policies of warmongers like George W. Bush.
