According to the daily Página 12 in Buenos Aires, the rally to legalize marijuana in that city drew 12,000 people. ... In Buenos Aires, speaking to the multitude in the Rosedal de Palermo park, Gustavo Hurtado of ARDA (Harm Reduction Association of Argentina) said:
“The repressive policies [of drug prohibition], the prosecution of personal possession of small amounts of drugs as a serious crime, and makes drug users into criminals. This keeps them out of the healthcare system and only increases the potential for harm and the risks of HIV/AIDS transmission.”
Like many policies pursued by the US administration, he said, drug prohibition is an “irrational aggression.” The central message of the Buenos Aires march, said Hurtado, was to “say no to the war on drugs, and say no to the war on drug users.”
