Richard Nixon's 'war on drugs' began 40 years ago, and the battle is still raging

Piece to mark 40 years of failure. Paramilitary rhetoric is not the way forward. As always, the journalistic view, despite the more complex comments of his interviewees comes down to a black and white, either or conclusion. The issues of drug taking, misuse, addiction are far too important to let a journalist loose on them. Unpicking the various markets will take a properly risk-profiled strategy and a more equal relationship between states.
