Default US allies call for drug legalisation

The Summit of the Americas, normally a subdued tri-annual gathering of regional leaders, could be more interesting than usual this year, as right-wing governments are set to clash with their US allies over the war on drugs.
An increasingly large chorus of nations - ravaged by trafficking and violence - say it's now time to re-think international drug policy. As the corrupting power of cartels grows across Mexico and Central America, and as the body count rises, legalisation needs to be seriously discussed as an alternative to militarisation, regional leaders say.
It isn't a message US President Barack Obama wants to hear when he arrives in Cartagena, Colombia, to meet 33 heads of state on April 14.

"This will be the first meeting of heads of state where this [legalisation and decriminalisation] will be on the agenda," Nadelmann said. "It's a game changer, the pendulum is swinging in a new direction for the first time in 100 years."

Can't see the US agreeing to such a major change in it's drug strategy but who knows, Obama does seem to listen to the demands of South America.
