We have an absolute duty to seal our borders/ports etc. so that the Mexicans making those drugs can’t get it into the U.S

So we can turn a blind eye to the fact the demand comes from the USA?

There is already a blind eye turned toward the ones that are bringing the drugs over here.

I hope not. The demand has to stop. Legalization is the solution.

You mean the way you turn a blind eye to intelligent and relevant comments?

There is no "solution" to the problem. If we are to help Mexico and affect the violence we must employ many strategies, one of which is decriminalization/legalization . If we continue to make a worthless weed into the most valuable crop on earth we can only empower the cartels.

We must also stop the wealth from going south. We hardly even try to stop the drugs coming north and do not lift a finger to stop the payoff from going south.

And out drug problme must be addressed. The best way to address it would be to treat it as an addiction and a mental issue rather than a criminal issue. We hurt our society by criminalizing mental problems and we are using our prison facilities as mental institutions. This makes the problem much worse.

And as long as we glamorize the drug culture in a society where there is no opportunity we insure that our young people will grow up criminals and drug dealers. If we offered prosperity for all rather than only the elite our problems woud dissipate rapidly.

This problem illustrates the reason why the Mexican cartel violence will eventually spill over into the US and I doubt there is anything we can do to prevent it. You think this guy is the only one with ties to the cartels that is living over here legally or not? And those animals from the cartels will take a ride over here to get them.
There have been a couple of cartel hits in El Paso already and a lot of kidnappings. The cartels dont want to draw attention to themselves in El Paso but that is going to change when all these scumbags start fleeing north.
Look at the situation in Phoenix and other cities where cartel violence is already taking hold. This thing is going to get very ugly for the U.S. Action is always quicker than reaction thats why we should do something now before there is no turning back. Just exactly what to do is the question....

Puppetmaster, you should get out more often. One place you can go is the Nederlands, there weed has been decriminalized, with that came licensing, tax revenue and the addiction levels remains the same as they were 5 decades ago.

This Juarez cop asked for help. Being that he's been in the front line against (maybe) Cartels, gangs...he should expose all those lowlifes in the open as their own media are not allowed to do this in exchange for a temporary status. My guess is the cartels are operating in the US anyway & they need to be rid of if they're here.

Actualy the "addiction" levels are lower. They stopped arresting for marijuana because they had such a terrible heroin/opiate addiction rate. They decided to focus on the drugs that were actually CAUSING PROBLEMS and now they have succeeded in reducing heroin/opiate addictions dramatically. And by ignoring marijuana laws and allowing "coffee shops" to deal it they have a huge tourist business, a thriving marijuana horticultural business, and lower drug use rates for ALL DRUGS across the board.

It has been a success like every other country that has tried it. Canada is another great example.

Now, Puppymoisture will say that "America is not those other countries" but will not explain further how tht statement is relevant. He has done it a dozen times. But he still cant evidence why it wont work here, and he is completely clueless why it does work everyhere else. But that is just Puppymoisture and it really has no bearing on reality or what is right or wrong for this country.

Get a Life an read something before you make these kinds of assesments,

First How do you want a guy that is involved to expose somebody ,when he himslef is just as guilty as the others. He would basicly fingur himself.

Second your guess that the cartels operate in U.S./..Hello!

Get out of that rock you hide under.Of course they operate here,and so do our cartels...the U.S.,the CIA, NSA, Lawenforcments,Customs...our presidents and their crooked congress's.

So how do you want us to get rid of them ..you MORON!
