U.S. war on drugs has met none of its goals So, after all this time, one would expect some radical changes in the way the war on drugs is being conducted, right? At last! A change in direction, or is it? No, I guess not. Well, securing the southern border is the answer, right? Most of the drugs come across there, after all. Oh. They already did that, 40 years ago. Does that mean Mexico is not a key player? 10% of their economy!!?? Holy crap! Does the administration understand the the war on drugs is a failure? Yes, they do. So, changes are in order, right? No, I guess not. If it is a failure, then keep it going, increase funding, but don't make any major changes. That seems to be the current strategy, unchanged since 1970.
