Obviously, the smug, self-satisfied pricks, Obama and harper, begged to differ:
The Colombian president also said that the war on drugs isn't working and that he would like to see a debate on decriminalizing them.
Violence related to the drug trade has pushed murder rates in Central America and the Caribbean to the highest in the world.
But Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office has said he won't entertain any policy changes that would lift the prohibition of illicit drugs, while U.S. President Barack Obama repeated at the summit on Saturday that the White House believes "legalization is not the answer."Forget harper. He's a low-functioning ass-kisser. He's always been an unpopular creep who doesn't care that you know he'd trying to insult your intelligence. Look at Obama's drivel again:
"legalization is not the answer."So, a plan that has failed for over forty years IS the answer Barack? All the deaths caused by this war are part of the RIGHT answer? What the fuck are you even talking about Barack? You think your meaningless public relations garbage can get you out of anything?
Legalization of drugs isn't the answer to the failures and misery caused by the war on drugs because it's not about fighting crime or the scourge of addiction. The criminalization of drugs is about expanding the power of the state to oppress the population. Obama is, if anything, intent upon increasing the coercive powers of the state as capitalism implodes. harper hates humanity and jerks off to the idea of people languishing in prison cells. They don't give a shit about the sufferings their bullshit war on drugs is causing to the people of Latin America. They're complete scum-bags.
We need genuine democracy and policy based upon facts and sanity.
