The harm of prohibition far exceeds that, if any, of cannabis.  (Aug 26, 2010 | post #1)

U.S. rattled as Mexico drug war bleeds over

Creating conditions that are "Bad for business" is hardly an effective strategy. I would also not characterize adaptive activities as a reflection of anything other than the continuation of the escalation that began four decades ago. Drug traffickers do "A", enforcement develops tactics to counter; traffickers respond with "B", enforcement counters; traffickers ... it continues like an endless chess match but with more blood.  (Mar 19, 2009 | post #121)

U.S. rattled as Mexico drug war bleeds over

It seems apparent that tunnel vision continues to play a key role in the response to drug use for recreation. As with demon rum there were and are those that disapprove of drug use and are willing to prevent it at any cost, even when that cost is often measured in human lives lost or destroyed. Since it is a virtual impossibility to eliminate the desire that is the basis for drug use, i.e. pleasure, including the pleasure of a sip of fine whiskey, tequila or wine as well as enjoying a cigarette, pipe or good cigar. Efforts to make the negative consequences so draconian that fear will prevent use of drugs have obviously failed. The effort to eliminate supplies have also failed. Why then, do our governments continue to escalate the use of failed strategies & failed methods at an ever-increasing cost to our citizens? One aspect to consider is what organizations have been given the tasks. Law enforcement, especially when first handed the job, pretty much has one basic approach - find the "bad guys" and arrest them. I am of the opinion that it is impossible to arrest our way out of the problems associated with drug use, abuse and failed control policies. Now there are increasing calls for a military presence. That often is followed by a military intervention. That means bodies and collateral damage. If the issue were to be approached from a perspective of how to solve a problem perhaps rationality would indicate that different strategies and methods are more appropriate and more likely to succeed than current methods. A crescent wrench works really well on bolts and nuts, unfortunately it also works well as a hammer, but with limitations. Policy makers and decision makers need to reconsider the choice of tools as well as goals and objectives vis-a-vis the drug war.  (Mar 18, 2009 | post #113)

U.S. rattled as Mexico drug war bleeds over

Greetings to my neighbors to the south. I'd like to add a few comments regarding the previous posts. President Calderon's comment, as I read it, was that as long as Americans were going to continue consuming illegal drugs, the drug trade would be profitable enough it could not be eliminated. What I see as the key word is "illegal ". If the US were to legalize all drugs, not decriminalize, legalize, and control the entire process from production to consumption the Mexican cartels would need a different line of work. Grow American, buy American. Visit http://www.leap.cc /cms/index.php - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. We do NOT advocate drug use, we do advocate an end to the insanity of the drug war and the continuously rising tide of violence associated with prohibition.  (Mar 17, 2009 | post #104)

Taos, NM

Alternative Energy Sources Should? Should Not? receive sp...

As the wind has been my constant companion for quite some time I have considered letting it provide electricity for my home on Adelmo Medina Drive in Llano Quemado. Windstream 3.7 is a wind powered electrical generation system designed for residential/small business use. Relatively cost effective, small, quiet, not unsightly. As I began to investigate I quickly learned that there are those who talk about alternative energy and environmental concerns but those willing to walk the walk are not so easy to find. Easier to find are those who would stop someone else from walking the walk. Perhaps the Taos County Commission should consider special consideration for such projects. Favorable, I mean.  (Apr 17, 2008 | post #1)
