Berni: Worldwide war on drugs has failed

Security Secretary Sergio Berni believes that new methods for tackling narcotics and the drugs trade are now necessary, after asserting that efforts to eradicate the criminal industry have been a resounding failure.

During today's address to Congress, the politician expressed his belief that a dramatic rethinking of the situation was needed for the issue of drugs to be successfully met. "The frontal fight against drug trafficking has failed in the world," he told colleagues.

"Ever since [former US president Richard] Nixon's time a frontal assault has been proposed, one trillion dollars have been invested and drugs keep advancing," he fired in his briefing.

"So, we must have the courage to take on this worldwide problem with a new perspective. We must not fear discussing what are the new paradigms to combat this plague."

Berni added during his presentation that "it is crucial for jurisdictions to have a 'narcotrafficking secretary,'" while asking Congress "to have the courage, outside of party squabbles, to take up the necessary judicial tools".
