Colombian war on drugs
The “Colombia plan”, as a mean of eradicating drug production, already took her parents and husband away from her. Cultivating drugs is for her the only opportunity of offering a decent future to her three children.
The social and environmental costs of Plan Colombia have been duly recognized by much of the international community, notably by the European Union, whose Parliament voted 474 to 1 to condemn the plan in 2001.
How can we reduce the supply of drugs on the streets whilst providing producers with a viable economic choice to move away from drug production?
