BBC on Guatemala's new drug policy idea
We have previously looked at why Guatemala feels it is a victim in the South America to North America cocaine pipeline and that Guatemala's President has been pretty outspoken about the idea of legalizing drugs in his country as a way to pass the problem on to those who are actively involved: suppliers and users. Most of this has been from the perspective of the President of Guatemala and how the US is opposed to his ideas.
Enter the BBC into the picture. In this short video we get to see some short interviews with prisoners in Guatemala (lots of whom speak English) which provides a better understanding why Guatemala feels a more open approach will work. Note that at the end of the video, the reporter states that the UK is against Guatemala's idea.
