Bolivian President Evo Morales said that the anti-drug policy of the United States ultimately leads to an increase in illicit drug trafficking.

«Where is the DEA (Directorate of counter-narcotics United States) and U.S. military bases, there are growing drug trafficking, crime, illegal enrichment, corrupt elites and the servile merchants homeland,» wrote Morales in his microblog on Twitter.

According to Morales, the very neo-liberal governments and military dictatorships installed by the US, and the culmination of the drug trade.

Morales said that the US has no right to accuse other countries in drug trafficking, when the US accounts for the main demand for these substances. «What kind of morality are guided by the United States, «attestative» other countries when their cocaine use is 1.6%, while the world average is 0.4 percent,» wrote the Bolivian leader.

He believes that the anti-drug struggle for the US is only a pretext. «The US government uses counter-narcotics intervention in other countries and does nothing to reduce drug use among its population,» said Morales.

In March this year, Morales has accused the United States for the failure of the drug, when Washington in a special report made Bolivia, Venezuela and Myanmar to the list of countries which have not done well on anti-drug struggle. A year ago, he has offered to disband the DEA and to close the American military bases.

Morales at the time was a trades Union leader «cocaleros» — peasants growing Coca. He is a supporter of legalizing Coca. Traditional use of Coca in Bolivia he calls part of the culture of the Andes and spoken from high tribunes, including the UN, to these proposals. For clarity, Morales even chewed Coca leaves at the UN conference on drugs.
