These drug cartels operate out of the US as well and there have been d violence and kidnappings on US soil as far away as Atlanta related to Mexican drug cartels. This stuff is starting to effect the US and it is becoming our problem more so.

Not to mention that these drug cartels are coming into California, settling marijuana farms in our forests, and then in the process they will accidentally burn down sometimes because their makeshift labs will falter and catch fire, taking large portions of the forest in that very same fire. This just happened months ago.

Marijuana is the drug cartel's #1 source of income, not cocaine or meth. Which is why I'm glad to see California taking steps to get it legalized, because we take their #1 source of income, we can severely cripple the drug cartels and that will leave law enforcement to further cripple the same cartels due to their peddling of harmful drugs like meth and cocaine. And then you get the added perks like keeping it out of kids hands, opening of the hemp industry, tax revenues, saving money by pursuing real criminals, etc.

I do NOT want to turn this into a marijuana legalization discussion, but you cannot talk about the sky without talking about the sun, you know?

Oh, well if you put it that way then I can see why it's a problem in our nation, or in other words, it should be posted on the Politics forum.

Default Drug addiction counseling clears ...

Drug addiction counseling is integral towards complete recovery from addictions to illegal substances such as drugs and alcohol. In most instances, however, many people tend to overlook the importance of this procedure. Instead, a lot of people make mistake by immediately jumping into a more radical drug addiction treatment procedure which can be hazardous to the body and may even cause death.

Daily, nightly they kill 12 to 13 people, like nothing!!!! Its as close to a modern anarchy over there, its scary!! They have killed people in the daytime, in schools, shopping centers, in the middle of traffic, at drug rehab centers, its like theyre playing a live video game, their doesnt seem to be an end to this violence anytime soon. Everybody is scared to over there, because either you or the next day youll be found beheaded in the middle of the street, along with your wife, your kids, and all your friends! I know alot of people dont care, because ofcourse its just MEXICANS killing themselves afterall, but innocent children have also lost their lives~ I think it kind of shows the us, double standard when it comes to mexico, if this was happening in another part of the world, the us would have already intervined, kinda sad is you ask me

The World's most violent City

and the thing is its not just a shooting, the cartels torture, they'll cut off the limbs or head and kill innocent people while shooting up places and like you said in daylight.

I heard about the El Paso girl that was robbed then stoned to death last month in Juarez, those people are crazy, they have killed lawyers,police,kids, and the list goes on. An soldier from NM was killed there recently at a strip club when he tried to help a shooting victim.

and if you arnt dead when you go into the hospital, they will find your room and finish the job.

Exclamation Disarming Citizens

Mexico made it illegal for anyone to possess guns and ammunition years ago. This is a perfect example of how it increases crime. When the general public cannot defend themselves, only the criminals have weapons. Since the criminals already know the citizens are defenseless, they become easy prey. Mexico has no law and order. It has become a war zone along the border because of the competition between gangs of the drug cartels. It is not so much about drugs as it is about money and power. They are brutal and murderous, and have made it a point to show everyone they have no concience at all. They will kill everyone in a restaurant to ensure they kill the one they have targeted. Women, children and the elderly mean nothing to these animals. They have no code of conduct or respect for humanity. This is nothing new. Post glasnost Russia has been infected with the same disease. It has also been rampantly occurring in Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Kuwait and every other lawless place on earth. There is nothing more evil than greed and corruption. So long as there is a market for illegal drugs, blood will soak the ground as the vendors slaughter each other and anyone who attempts to stop them. The violence is already spilling over into the United States. Since some people find it too dangerous to live in Juarez, they have moved to El Paso only to be tracked down and murdered in plain view. Just a few weeks ago the mayor of Columbus, New Mexico (another border town), was brutally murdered in his home for offending the drug runners in a public statement. The murders go unpunished and they become bolder. We have some highly trained special forces who have been taking care of business on the other side of the world with these kind of problems. Perhaps it is time to bring them home to defend our borders. Until then, I will remain fully armed and ready to defend myself and my family.

The Colombian cartels and the American Mafia realize how much attention mass murder (especially of innocents) brings an organization.

The Mexicans have no reason to care, though. Their federal government is weaker than them, their northern neighbor won't do anything about it, and the southern neighbors have their own problems.

I just want to add some opinion from a law enforcement perspective. It would be incredibly naive to think that the drug war that is going on in Mexico, especially Juarez, has nothing to do with the U.S. What is going on in the border cities will have an effect on the U.S. whether one thinks so or not.

There are daily incursions of Mexican enforcers and other hitmen that cross into the country on a daily basis and what may appear as a random gang killing or drug killing, may be in fact the work of Mexican hitmen.

The scariest thing in my professional opinion to come out of Mexico are an organization called "Los Zetas". They are comprised of ex special forces commandos that are now drug traffickers. The level of extreme violence and barbaric tactics coupled with their special forces training in everything from technology to communications to their organization has made them unstoppable at this point. Not even well trained U.S. law enforcement are remotely prepared to deal with Los Zetas.

Los Zetas have been directly responsible for thousands of murders on both sides of the border and even have "sleeper cells" in major U.S. cities whose sole purpose is to await orders for them to carry out a hit. What is also happening is that enforcers work with the local gangs in that particular major city and at times, the Zetas will have the gangs carry out for them whenever it is convenient for them to do so.
