The problem is that the corporations and lobbyist that keep prohibition as the US policy are not donating to the political parties in the S.A. and C.A. countries as they are in the US,so these countries do not have the political incentive to continue using their limited resources in this failed policy.

For the last 70 years the industries and corporations that want hemp kept off the open market donated a few million dollars in election funds and received a pledge from the politicians that they would keep attempting for a drug free society,,and the US government spends trillions trying to keep that promise.

Now the US is cutting funding to these countries by as much as 60% and these countries do not have the resources or incentive to make up the loss of millions of dollars. The US is cutting funding the world's war on drugs while increasing their drug war budget from $16 billion too $25 billion this year,with no sign of success in 40 years of war.
