I have a piece at The Daily Beast today using Obama’s trip to Mexico as a hook for a broader discussion of his drug policy. Good: Ending the medical marijuana raids (or so we’ve been told). Bad: Exporting the disastrous Plan Columbia to Afghanistan, trying to bring back Byrne Grants. The same: just about everything else.
Also, Constantino Diaz-Duran’s piece on the queens of Mexico’s drug cartels is really interesting.
