  • Slide 6 - Reduction of Production The production and consumption of cocaine and opiaties were prohibited to be produced in 1914, with the Harrison Narcotics Act. (based on same US act) Marijuana, tobacco and alcohol were later prohibited in 1937 by the Colombian government.
  • Slide 7 - War on Drugs In 1971 US and other countries enforced military support in Colombia to reduce the production and trafficking of illegal drugs. United States President, Richard Nixon coined the phrase, “War on Drugs. This campaign still exists today and continue to battle drug cartels.
  • Slide 8 - Why should We Care? Reducing the amount of drugs being produced and sold in Columbia will in turn reduce the amount of illegal drugs that get shipped to the United States and sold here. Keeping these drugs out of our country should be very important, and should not have a place here!
