Who best to talk about the drug war than, Oliver North. Made famous in the Iran-Contra scandal, he knows drug trafficking, albeit “contra”versial.   North faults Obama’s efforts for not fighting the war head-on as the Obama Administration coordinates efforts with Mexico taking on the drug war, less directly.   While, Mexican citizens deal with violence, U.S. citizens deal with addiction, fueling demand.   Sen. Jim Webb’s efforts is a proposal that seeks to reduce demand through widespread treatment starting in our jails.  America’s addiction to heroin, methamphetamines and marijuana is fueling this war.  Reducing drug demand is a beneficial place to start.  links by M.
