Colombia court: No jail time for possession of cocaine, marijuana for personal use

BOGOTA, Colombia — Colombia’s Constitutional Court has ruled that people cannot be jailed for possessing cocaine and marijuana for personal use.

The decision ratifies a previous Supreme Court ruling that said people cannot be jailed for possession of a so-called personal dose. A 2009 law placed the dose at up to 20 grams of marijuana and one gram of cocaine.

Latin America wants to end the war on drugs...

... if only USA will let them and do the same. It is great about the 20 grams in Columbia, but let's keep the big picture in mind and tell other: Only Ron Paul foreign policy and desire to end the war on drugs NOW is in touch with the Latin American reality and the desires of their leaders and people. Barack Obama at the recent Summit of Americas imposed the US view on the matter which means further militarization of the DEA and its activities in Latin American countries.

That is one of the reasons why in 2012 I will vote Ron Paul!

Thanks for commenting and the link.
Dr. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are the only people who can end the war on drugs which should be called war on the people.
