Maybe it's time the US actually tried to secure the borders and the ports. Oh that's right...that will never happen because big corporate lobbyists and the Chamber of Commerce would have have the free flow of goods than to actually stop the voilence, human trafficking or drug trafficking.

either your a drug addict or you very uninform and ignorant but alcohol which is a legal drug, is a psychoactive drug, more than 100,000 deaths are acused each yearby alcohol, direct and indirect causes include drunk driveing crashs, cirrhosis of the liver, falls, cancer and strokes
And it is legal...what does it have to do with legalizing Marijuana? Lets pull our heads out of the sand and rethink things like this never ending failed "war on drugs" that has been costing billions and billions of dollars since its inception. Lets try something new, lets try and actually profit from legal marijuana!

How come when we aren't doing more to help these poor people. Drug Cartels are going house to house knocking on doors and taking fathers from their families and if the father won't come and work for them? They kill the father right in front of their family. Imagine that happening in your house, in your town, and to your friends, your brothers, your cousins, your nephews, your uncles. Then they use these men that do go (at gun point) to do their ambushes adn they end up getting killed anyway. It's innocent people that are getting killed. This will affect the U.S.
Not our Country's problem. Have they been helping America out with all of our problems?....not!

in America drug cartels are called swat teams or death squads by the public. There are drug cartels operating in every community. Reagan introduced drugs in America and his criminal just us systems he created has Introduced drugs to small town America. These criminal just us systems deal drugs and then arrest the victim. Just more Reagon omicks. Hara for me lets screw the public. remeber the public opinion, piblic needs and public welbeing are all destroyed by your local cartel. These are called officers of there lawless cartels. Hiding behind the badge and the law. Corporate media deny this crimes that are happening in every town. Just like comunism was not allowed in Russian media. the truth is never allowed in American media. The welafre of the people is distroyed by corporte lies.

IN rural Wisconsin police who are actyually Drug Cartels are going house to house knocking on doors and taking fathers from their families and if the father won't come and work for them? They kill the father right in front of their family. Imagine that happening in your house, in your town, and to your friends, your brothers, your cousins, your nephews, your uncles. Then they use these men that do go (at gun point) to do their ambushes adn they end up getting killed anyway. It's innocent people that are getting killed. No one has to imagine they how many have they killed in the cities this week alone? We l could be witnesses against cartels acting as police. In 1945 these were consider war crimes. In America it is law. Making America lawless and a non civilized society. Animals now have more rights.
