Interview on drug legalization

Here is an interview with a drug policy expert.  He is a big supporter of gradual decriminalization of drug possession, which he feels is the surest way to put drug mafias out of business.  Given recent developments in Colombia, where criminal groups have been diversifying to get into mining, commodity plantations, and many other extractive activities, I am no longer so sure if legalizing drugs will do away with these evil groups.  But it will probably help to weaken them and to improve life for lots of people.
