If we did not have a war on drugs then these murders would not have taken place because we would not have the drug cartels in the first place.
There is no doubt in my mind that what ever the negative aspects of legalizing drugs would be they are not as bad as the violence and financial drain caused by the illegal drug trade.
I remember when you could come and go as you pleased in these border towns, now you can't go anywhere but the resort areas and be safe.
Like many of our other problems government turned out to be the problem not the solution.
