The War on Drugs and Plan Colombia produces grim consequences in Colombia and no results in the USA

Instigated by Richard Nixon, the surge to end drug problems in the USA has been fought with tough penalties for drug related crimes at home and through violent conflicts abroad – especially in Colombia. The crops of Colombian farmers are destroyed in attempts to wipe out coca plants. However, the pesticides also ruin the health of many Colombians. In the WAR ON DRUGS we meet experts and politicians, as well as the victims of social consequences both in Colombia and in the USA.
