Blow Monkeys of the World Unite

The Observer (from the UK) had a fascinating piece over the weekend about the global cocaine trade. It was written by a documentary filmmaker who spend a year and a half investigating the business aspects of the drug, from the streets of Britain to the jungles of South America. What's interesting is that he was a self-described supporter of the UK's war on drugs (hard drugs, at least) but he became a proponent of legalization by the time his work was over. His article should give pause to anyone who is convinced that the "war on drugs" is being won on any tangible level.
