Abstract

After decades as a seemingly unchallengeable feature of the new global system, the prohibition of drugs is finally coming under sustained criticism from a broad-based coalition, which for the first time includes sitting heads of state. While this is an entirely welcome development given the variety of significant problems associated with the “War on Drugs,” a number of significant uncertainties remain with respect to the future of drug trafficking and drug violence in a post-universal prohibition world.
