A promising admission after decades of denial. But his solution to "reducing the demand" is where things start getting tricky. I believe countries like Portugal are on the right track. But if the Republicans continue with policies that attack the support services designed to help lift people up from poverty and care for them when they are unable to care for themselves then they will only increase the price of the stupidly banned substances while creating more impoverished and psychologically weak and depressed people who will continue seeking escape from their intolerable reality in substances from inhalants and alcohol to heroin. Education and opportunities for economic mobility are the keys to licking this social and health problem.
