There’s a new country calling for the decriminalization of cocaine. This news is nothing to sneeze at because the country is Colombia, the source of just about all the cocaine seized, snorted, and rubbed on gumlines across America. “Two weeks after taking office, the country’s first leftist government is proposing an end to ‘prohibition’ and the start of a government-regulated cocaine market. Through legislation and alliances with other leftist governments in the region, officials in this South American nation hope to turn their country into a laboratory for drug decriminalization. ‘It is time for a new international convention that accepts that the war on drugs has failed,’ President Gustavo Petro said in his inaugural address this month.” It’s hard to turn your nose up at that analysis.
