On September 21, 2016, Juan Cruz Díaz, Managing Director of Cefeidas Group, and junior consultant, Megan Cook, were featured in the Inter-American Dialogue‘s Latin America Advisor. They commented on the following question:

“Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Aug. 30 unveiled a new initiative to combat a growing drug problem, promising the plan would fight both addictions and the illegal drug trafficking business. The initiative includes efforts to eliminate coca paste, an ingredient in cocaine, as well as more resources for police and the justice system, and protections for informants on drug cases. Will the initiatives succeed in reducing drug consumption and trafficking in Argentina? How bad is Argentina’s problem with illegal drugs as compared to other Latin American countries, and what factors are behind the country’s problems?”
