Hey, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/may/18/western-leaders-game-changing-drugs-reportQuoteEuropean governments and the Obama administration are this weekend studying a "gamechanging" report on global drugs policy that is being seen in some quarters as the beginning of the end for blanket prohibition.
Publication of the Organisation of American States (OAS) review, commissioned at last year's Cartagena Summit of the Americas attended by Barack Obama, reflects growing dissatisfaction among Latin American countries with the current global policy on illicit drugs. It spells out the effects of the policy on many countries and examines what the global drugs trade will look like if the status quo continues. It notes how rapidly countries' unilateral drugs policies are evolving, while at the same time there is a growing consensus over the human costs of the trade. "Growing media attention regarding this phenomenon in many countries, including on social media, reflects a world in which there is far greater awareness of the violence and suffering associated with the drug problem," José Miguel Insulza, the secretary general of the OAS, says in a foreword to the review. "We also enjoy a much better grasp of the human and social costs not only of drug use but also of the production and transit of controlled substances."
Insulza describes the report, which examines a number of ways to reform the current pro-prohibition position, as the start of "a long-awaited discussion", one that experts say puts Europe and North America on notice that the current situation will change, with or without them. Latin American leaders have complained bitterly that western countries, whose citizens consume the drugs, fail to appreciate the damage of the trade. In one scenario envisaged in the report, a number of South American countries would break with the prohibition line and decide that they will no longer deploy law enforcement and the army against drug cartels, having concluded that the human costs of the "war on drugs" is too high.
The west's responsibility to reshape global drugs policy will be emphasised in three weeks when Juan Manuel Santos Calderón, the president of Colombia, who initiated the review, arrives in Britain. His visit is part of a programme to push for changes in global policy that will lead up to a special UN general assembly in 2016 when the scenarios of the OAS are expected to have a significant influence.
But, you know, the tide of public opinion (at least in states that matter) is with RWHN, or something. Check out the signatories at the bottom, too.
I guess that guy really showed you, huh, Roger? Sorry you had to deal with the travel bullshit. That many OSHA violations in one place gives me the willies.
Tangentally related story of how much employers give a fuck about safety in general:
About five years ago I was working at a supermarket. Somebody called in a bomb threat (which is, of course, a jake 99% of the time, but that 1% is a bitch). They didn't tell us what was going on, they just got all the workers and customers to go stand outside and wait. Then they got the ONE BLACK EMPLOYEE, who worked as a meat cutter, to go in and walk around the store and "see if he saw anything unusual". Then a cop came and talked with the manager and everybody went back in.
THAT is not proper bomb threat protocol.
Yes I DO know proper bomb threat protocol, including the RIGHT way to clear a building.
You tell them it's a fire drill until they get outside. Stampedes cause injuries.
You make sure the building's empty by doing a walkthrough.
Then don't touch a damn thing, ESPECIALLY light switches or devices, as a change in the power state of any given device or light switch may be a triggering mechanism..
You then wait for the bomb squad, because they know what they are doing and they probably get paid more than you.
P.P.S I'm really glad Rev Roger does his job.
No, but my sense of humor still has acne problems.Your direct influence has helped take a little bit of ugliness out of the world, because you decided to give a shit about human life and put in the work to help preserve it.
Think of all those people who cannot give a shit in Bangladesh. Give generously.
how old are you? 17?
