in disrepute? "Evidence Is In" and is Exonerative......
What should be a matter of social justice and inclusive politics has been reduced to the logical equivalent of water-boarding.
The failure of 'due process' in the USA is dirt on the hands of those who govern and they should be held to account.

There has never been a better chance available to all world citizens to circumvent the tyranny of the majority than UNODC Vienna 2009.
It is, as it were, in your hands... each and everyone of you.
see Beyond 2008 NGO consultation recommendations containing clear harm reduction and human rights language, calling for evidence-based, culturally and socially sensitive approaches, calling for inclusion of all affected and stigmatised populations, access to alternative livelihoods before eradication, improved access to essential medicines under treaty control, encouraging alternatives to criminal/prison sanctions, analysing unintended consequences of the drug control system, taking into account traditional licit uses, and many more.
This is the stuff of social capital. Back the horse that is winning.
