During his trip to Colombia for the Summit of the Americas, Latin American leaders gave President Obama an earful about Washington's drug war. But few of the stories in the press acknowledge the human costs of the drug war in Latin America.

We need to set the record straight.

Please send a letter to the editor of your local newspapers to make sure that the failures of the drug war are front and center.

We've made it easy for you to contact your local newspaper with your views, but editors want to hear from you in your own words. Feel free to edit our sample letter.
