Interestingly enough, it is Latin America that just might end up leading the world, including the United States, out of the drug-war morass in which most countries have plunged during the past 40 years. After four decades of death, economic destruction, political corruption, ruination of lives, torture, gang wars, drug cartels, drug lords, bribery, asset forfeiture, mandatory-minimum sentences, militarization of the border, attacks on privacy, police-state tactics, no-knock raids, warrantless searches, and constant assaults on the Bill of Rights, there just might be light at the end of this dark tunnel, one that unfortunately the U.S. government is, in large part, responsible for.
