- Why is is urgent to move from a prohibitionist to a regulatory paradigm focusing on public health and involving all countries of the global transboundary system of illicit drugs.
- How the U.S. security policies created a ferocious fight amongst organized crime groups to recapture routes, territories, and border crossings previously controlled by enemy drug groups.
