In the Netherlands a part of the war is over: 5 plants is legal since april 26 2011.
A decision of the High (!) Court..
They thought about the subject...and found out that it is best to let the small growers do their hobby.
Clever judges these highest judges in the NL!

"Regardless of how you try to explain to people it's a 'war on drugs' or a 'war on a product,' people see a war as a war on them,"


Well, maybe that is just because Americans fight everything with jet bombers. The war on terror is not fought with intelligence, but with jet bombers. If the USA wants two men, they just bomb two countries (and find only one person).

The first thing I heard of the war on drugs was using aircraft against drug fields in South America.

Even the war on justice will probably be fought with aircraft strikes: The USA has declared war on the international court of justice, whenever an American is brought to trial. To be fought with military means...

There are sound bites of hope in this latest news. The writing is on the wall as they say, whether it stays there is another thing. I think there maybe a change coming, but then again it remains to be seen. I know there are a lot of Americans who voted in a phone in poll on legalizing cannabis and a lot of Christian folk are too.
 
Personnally I think there should be a radical reform in these times of prohobition on all drugs. We need to stop the harm of hard drugs for starters and that IMO includes cig's and booze.
 
There can only be hope. Government will never win a war on drugs or however they put it.

Load of old tosh. Just getting rid of a slogan, not the policies. All bloomin talk i rekon. It's all so low down on their list of things to do anyway, even if Obama is in office for two terms, i don't think any major changes will be made. Only good thing is they are stopping raiding medical dispensries, and legal medical growers.

Norm Stamper, a member of LEAP writing for the Huffington Post makes a very good point about the US budget being a good predictor of we can probably expect from this apparent reform:

“So, in retiring the phrase from the federal lexicon will we really be ending the "War on Drugs"? Hardly. We can reasonably expect in the face of Kerlikowske's pronouncement, an expression of shock and a circling of the wagons from key institutional forces, from frontline drug warriors to profiteering drug traffickers; from well-meaning but naïve PTAs to patronizing, fear-mongering politicians; from Big Pharma to the prison industrial complex. There's just too much at stake, financially and ideologically, to end this remarkably divisive and durable war.

Is the Obama administration serious about implementing drug policy reform? We all know the significance of a presidential budget. It's essentially dollars and cents representing policies and priorities. What does the administration's "National Drug Control Budget" tell us about the Obama approach to drug issues?

In the 2010 budget, prevention takes a 10.6 percent hit while domestic law enforcement gets a boost of 2.3 percent, with "interdiction" (military and police actions designed to stem the flow of drugs into and about the country) gaining 4.4 percent. On the positive side of the ledger, treatment shows a 4.4 percent increase. And what of the never-ending seesaw battle between supply and demand initiatives? Unfortunately, demand reduction efforts (education, prevention) are down 0.8 percent, while (generally futile) supply reduction initiatives (enforcement, burning or poisoning crops) gets a 2.7 percent bump.

Still, it's way too early to dismiss the Obama/Biden/Kerlikowske approach as just so much smoke and mirrors. The country is a-rumble with signs of change.”
