Colombia is responsible for the high level of drug consumption in the US

The governments of both countries agreed that the problem of drug trafficking and drug use is not a matter of a single country, and no one has drawn the attention of consumers to the issue of solving the problem.

The Chancellor of Mexico, Alicia BarcenOh, and the one from Colombia, Alvaro Leyva Duran made it clear that neither of these two countries is responsible for the high valued Consumption of drugs in the United States of America.

At the beginning of the plenary session of the Latin American Conference on Drugs and Future Prospects, In which 16 countries of the continent take part, it was announced that measures to combat drug trafficking that go beyond prohibition measures will be announced on the same day.

As part of the conclusions of the conference, Latin America and the Caribbean will seek to speak with one voice and share their visions and experiences in combating drug trafficking.

The Colombian Foreign Minister stressed that there would be no supply if there was no demand, but the analysis carried out is always from the perspective of the responsibility of producers, although no one has attracted the attention of consumers.

“The day consumption disappears – which will be impossible – the crop and supply of hallucinogens will disappear,” he said.

On this occasion, the Mexican diplomat explained that Mexico is aware of the serious situation in which thousands of young people in the United States find themselves due to high drug consumption, which is why she explained that governments must fight the gangs that smuggle drugs.

He stressed that countries must put communities at the center through education, public health, and comprehensive care interventions to prevent young people from taking “easy paths”.

The conclusions of this meeting and an anti-drug stance will be announced by the President of Mexico. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and from Colombia, Gustavo Petro.
