Audacious, well-planned and executed, there are no words to describe the most spectacular evasion of the century of the most powerful drug lord in the world. And no better illustration of the dismal failure of the war on drugs.

Deep roots into society of Narco-trafficking & organized crime: 
The longer narco-trafficking is allowed to flourish, the deeper the roots it grows into society, the harder it becomes to eradicate it.
Alcohol prohibition lasted only 13 years, but it took the US, the most powerful country on earth, more than 50 years to somewhat curb the power of the mafias.

Investigative writer - Author of "World War-D: the case against prohibitionism. A roadmap to controlled re-legalization."
Born in Europe, I earned a master degree in Mathematics and Logics from a prestigious French school. I got involved at various levels of the drug scene in the early 70s and was closely stricken by the tragedy of drug abuse. I moved to the US in the early 1980’s to start a natural health business which reached wide international distribution and was intimately involved in marketing and P.R. I wrote a book on a natural health related topic published in 1990, which is still in print and was translated into Spanish, Portuguese and German. I wrote numerous articles and gave countless lectures and seminars throughout the world. I am very familiar with public speaking and made several TV appearances.
