Colombia: Drug Growers Association To Be Founded

Illicit drug producers in Colombia are planning to found the National Coordinator of Coca, Marijuana and Opium Growers, La Silla Vacia reported Jan. 23. The group would represent an attempt to forge a common negotiating front with the government to influence any potential agreements on drug control that come as a result of peace talks with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). The organization would have national reach and appears to be an effort to create a political coalition with the aim of directly negotiating with the government. Notably, such a coalition could form a future political support base for an eventual FARC political party. By linking the future of a FARC party to the issue of forceful eradication, which the group would almost assuredly oppose, the pace of eradication in Colombia could end up slowing even further
