Quote of the day - drugs

From Mauricio Rodríguez, Colombia's ambassador in London, via The Observer (hat tip: Patrick):
"Let's be serious about where the big money is. If you look at the trail of cocaine, you'll find that 5% of the profits remain in the producing countries; 95% is in the distribution networks and laundered. The big money is in the big banks in the big countries; the big money is in the US, Europe and Asia."
One more for our quotations page. It's an interesting overview of the decades-long war(s) on drugs.
