    Though theres not really any proof that this is state policy than just being about corruption on a lower level. This kind of thing is pretty normal for Latin America though. For instance in the city were i volunteerd in Peru the police would routinely confiscate drugs and then resell them to the highest bidder.

    As regards the war on drugs i personally think we should be more worried about the armed gangs themselves then what they,re selling. I think the violence they,re involved in is far more destructive.

    No, and I understand your point, but heroine and meth use cause rapid deterioration of the body. Also, alcohol production is strictly controlled, whereas anyone can produce meth in their home.

    Only thing fuelling the drugs trade is the appetite of the consumer. Blaming Chavez for the flow of drugs is more anti-Chavez BS crap from the American right.

    Chavez is no angel, and I hate the guy, but for god sake when attacking him, attack him for something that actually is realistic and fair. It is just playing right into his hands when American right wingers go around claiming he is aiding the drug dealers....
