End the drug war addiction
The Heads of State of the Americas:
We call on you to end the War on Drugs and the prohibition regime, and move towards a system based on decriminalisation, regulation, public health and education. This 50 year old policy has failed, fuels violent organised crime, devastates lives and is costing billions. This Summit is an opportunity to initiate a humane and effective approach. We have no time to lose -- take action now!

For the first time ever key Latin American leaders are questioning drug policy and are calling for debate on decriminalisation. And even the US, who invented the war on drugs, is admitting that it is not working. This is a tectonic shift -- but many are scared to to begin the move towards alternative policies for fear of a public backlash. It's up to us to give them the mandate they need.
This summit is a powder keg only we can light that will blast us free from the billions spent to fuel drug violence and destruction. Let’s give these leaders a huge wave of global support to lead their region and the world into a sane and humane drug policy -- sign the petition, share with everyone and when we reach 500,000 signatures, our call will be delivered directly to the summit in Cartagena.
