Obama Administration Takes Baby Steps On Drug Policy

by Jay Allbritton
Surprised no one seems to be calling for Obama's impeachment over this. Yet.
The Obama administration signalled today that it was ready to repudiate the prohibition and "war on drugs" approach of previous presidents, and steer policy towards prevention and "harm reduction" strategies favoured by Europe.

David Johnson, an assistant secretary of state, said the new administration would embrace policies supporting federally funded needle exchanges. The aim, he said, was to establish a policy based on public health needs. "This will result in a policy that is broader and stronger than the one we had in the past," Johnson said on the sidelines of a UN drug strategy conference in Vienna.
Too bad the situation is so bad that Obama now has a containment problem on our Southern boarder.

Writer Linda Valdez, of The Arizona Republic, calls for legalizing weed to end the violence.
