The war on drugs has been lost from the beginning. There are always drug addicts that play the role in the economics: demanding it for consumption.
Good people have died in vain, even last week 10 anti-drugs policemen were massacred. There are thousands of people displaced living the outskirts of big cities. They live in poverty and their lands have been taken away by guerrillas or drug lords. Thousands have disappeared, kidnapped, executed.
Whenever somebody links Colombia to cocaine I feel uncomfortable. Because after so many years of this war on drugs, what I really despise are the consumers who keep the cash flowing to drug dealers and guerrillas that have been tearing apart Colombia for over 40 years.
And today is election day…. what’s your addiction?
