“The war on drugs is not a war against the illegal trade of illicit substances, but rather an action in which a largely poor and rural underclass is killed, displaced or oppressed in order to seize resources and open them up for privatization by transnational mining and petroleum companies, as well as foreign direct investment and military control.”  – Dawn Paley
