In an interview with Univision’s Enrique Acevedo prior to the Summit of the Americas, President Obama said: “I don’t mind a debate on issues such as decriminalization. I personally don't agree that that's a solution to the problem, but I think that, given the pressures that a lot of governments are under here -- under resourced, overwhelmed by violence -- it’s completely understandable that they would look for new approaches and we want to cooperate with them."
