Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director of the DPA said this is a multigenerational struggle: there is no Berlin Wall for drug policy reform. However, the fall of the Soviet Union reminds us that the inconceivable can happen. Today people like Jesse Jackson link arm with us. He said DEA agents and prosecutors are the most anti-reform people in America, "they are out of control" and demonstrate that governments can do evil even in a democratic society. Drug reformers are labeled as people who want to use drugs freely - there is some truth in it, but there are drug reformers who hate drugs but realized that the war on drugs is not the answer. "We are the people who love and hate drugs," he said. Mr. Nadelmann expressed his frustration over the reluctance of the Obama administration to show a strong leadership in ending the war.
