Caribbean, Central America, South America, Latin America, Mexico,etc. all these Government need to fight the drug violence and start doing for their people/ poor. Coming to America will not solve their problems.It only postpones/ a band-aid effect that will only get worst not just them ,but for us(Americans)because of their migration(mostly illegal) and the cost of supporting so many poor.

Obama likes to blame America/Americans for every other countries failures,but who brought their drugs into our Country/States/Cities/neighbor hoods and schools. Who are the ones supporting all the poor from these countries.... the taxpayers. Whether remittance sent or welfare services... we are supporting a population who will not/refuse to fight for their countries/fight their Government and so on.

Obama needs to immediately apologize for the United States and send them a few billion dollars, as sign of good will.

With states legalizing drugs here, drug violence in competing drug runners has no incentive to ebb.

A gram of pure cocaine is 74% cheaper today than it was 30 years ago.

At least if the Government ran the show it would be unaffordable again.

How dare you! Obama and Holder were doing their part for the war on drugs. They just made a mistake and sent the guns to the wrong address. Yeah, yeah that's the ticket.

Not sure if I'm with you on that one. This is the same government that spends $500 for toilet seats for airplanes.
Now if you made Willy Nelson or Snoop Lion, Dog, Jedi Etc the Grass Czar maybe, but then again would we ever see weed with those two in charge.
