I hate to say it, but maybe it is time to legalize drugs. Let the idiots abuse themselves. Too many innocent people are dying in the drug cartel violence.
That’s the only way out, I think.
Have the big pharmaceutical companies produce legal drugs, and minimize the risk of them being instantly or strongly addictive.
It won’t stop the cartels from producing the instant and strongly addictive drugs, like crack or meth, but hopefully it will cut their income severely that Mexico can win its drug war.
It will never be so as it would put: Judges, lawyers, policemen/women out of work and POLITICIANs out less of their "income", and of course the insurance companies would have to lower our homeowners premiums.
So it is not likely to be legalized. Status Quo equals population control.
naw, time to use the only solution ever found to work ~ start executing the users
