Reporter: Tracy Bowden

"TRACEY BOWDEN, PRESENTER: Elsewhere across Victoria today police launched one of the biggest anti drugs operations the state has ever seen.

More than 600 officers raided a cannabis and heroin syndicate that police allege made $400 million in just the past two years.

But as police were claiming victory in that battle, a visiting expert on narcotics law was telling the National Press Club that the wider international war on drugs can't be won.

Ethen Nadelmann heads the George Soros funded Policy Alliance in New York. He says that privately more and more politicians, police and health authorities know prohibition of drugs can't succeed and in fact only benefits criminals.

And he argues a move to decriminalise soft drugs and regulate supply of narcotics in countries like Australia is only a matter of time.

I spoke to Ethan Nadelmann in Sydney."
