Colombia's President Santos: "I would talk about legalising marijuana and more than just marijuana."

Colombia's wildly popular new president, Juan Manuel Santos, told The Observer in the United Kingdom, that regarding global drug policy, "The world needs to discuss new approaches... we are basically still thinking within the same framework as we have done for the last 40 years."

Santos took office in the summer of 2010, winning a very strong mandate to succeed former president Alvaro Uribe.

The comments in this interview, by a sitting president whose national popularity and global prestige is steadily growing, are enormously important to the advance the cause of drug policy reform.
