"Drug Policy Reform in the Americas: A Remarkable Turn of Events," with Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, the leading organization in the United States promoting alternatives to the war on drugs.

The multi-decade drug war consensus is crumbling.  Latin American presidents are talking openly about decriminalization and even legal regulation of illegal drugs.  Voters in Colorado and Washington State recently approved historic ballot measures to legally regulate marijuana like alcohol.  The rapid pace of reform is catching everyone by surprise.  Why is this happening? And where is this going?
