Report Says U.N. Strategy To Eliminate Illegal Drug Market Failed

CNN: Report says the U.N.’s global ‘war on drugs’ has been a failure
“The United Nations’ drug strategy of the past 10 years has been a failure, according to a major report by the International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC), which has called for a major rethinking of global policy on illegal narcotics.
