Still think the "war on drugs" isn't political?

Then why does the Obama Administration report justifying the cancellation of trade benefits for Bolivia under the ATPDEA program cites as one of the US concerns Articles in Bolivia's New Constitution covering private property rights?

What specifically constitutional property rights have to do with cociane production and trade is beyond me. But hey, if you're the US government, I mean, fuck it, right? Why put up pretenses anyways? You're the Empire. Little countries like Bolivia ought to know their place and draft constitutions to the favor of US corporations.
