OAS (the Organization of American States) Wants U.S. to Legalize Pot

On the Latin American street, the Organization of American States has always borne a reputation, not always deserved, as Washington's lackey. But the OAS, based in Washington, just tossed the White House a message it would rather not hear: It's time to seriously discuss legalizing marijuana as one means of reducing the western hemisphere's harrowing drug violence.

That conclusion, from a study presented last Friday in Bogota, Colombia, by OAS Secretary-General Jose Miguel Insulza, is one that a growing number of Latin American governments -- including Uruguay, which legalized marijuana last year -- are urging the Obama Administration to accept.

Having the motion seconded by Washington's "lackey" makes it harder to ignore.
