San Cristobal, Guanajuato — President Vicente Fox is among a growing number of leaders in Latin America calling on the U.S. to legalize drugs to reduce violence and organized crime.
“Prohibitions don’t work, and the last remaining frontier of prohibition is drug, and we should questions ourselves why drugs,” Fox said.
It’s the same question President Barack Obama will hear from some of the leaders gathered at the Summit of the Americas this weekend in Colombia during talks about drug policies in the region.
“This war on drugs is totally lost,” said Fox, the former president, during an interview at his sprawling ranch, where he built the first presidential library in Mexico.
