extent propels the dynamics of these drug cartels. Secondly, the U.S. =20

needs to be realistic and open up a dialogue with drug policy experts =20

of various orientations in order to come up with a comprehensive 
solution to the co-ordinates of supply and demand; tens of billions of =20

dollars over the years have been spent on supply-side drug control, yet =20

illicit narcotics remain readily available in the U.S and elsewhere.
