Paul Volcker

Former Chairman of the US Federal Reserve

"For 40 years now, our nation's approach has been to criminalize the entire process of producing, transporting, selling and using drugs, with the exception of tobacco and alcohol. Our judgment, shared by other members of the commission, is that this approach has not worked, just as our national experiment with the prohibition of alcohol failed... As the global commission concludes: 'Break the taboo on debate and reform. The time for action is now.'"
