Nobel laureate comment

I heard a report that the latest Nobel Peace prize laureate, has commented on the Drug war, during his acceptance speech.. the prize was awarded to the President of Colombia, for his work to end a long running sectarian war in his country.

It was reported that he also stated that ‘it is time to rethink the War on Drugs…’ he went on to make the comments that it was a total failure, with Coca production in his country, at an all time high (Cocaine). He then also added that ‘how can they prosecute a ‘marijuana’ grower, when 8 states in USA have now legalised it ?’

I agree; it is totally ridiculous that the USA-led Drug War (esp. Cannabis) is actually, now being slowly but surely, overturned in the country that leads it ! :/
