The threat to society is the users in America who are the root of the problem

Obviously it is the open border that most benefits the cartels.

Imagine what would happen if they allow Americans to try to take over the meth production and crack cocaine imports but leave the border wide open and do nothing about the violent cartel thugs? The Zetas would start sawing off the heads of their American competitors -- just like they do in Mexico.

You'd have to get some kind of control over the border if you don't want the cartel violence here.
Some diff there; the American drug gangs WILL shoot back cause Americans can an do own guns. One percent motorcycle gangs like the Hells Angels or Vagos will go toe to to with the Zetas.

I dont wanna get caught when the lead flys.

Del a GOOD reason to close the border with Mexico an tight.

You and Benicar have alternately made the point that legalization would be GOOD for the cartels (lol) and that the cartels would be outraged and lash out.
Please quote the post. I said no such nonsense.

You need to keep in mind that homicide rates in the USA aren't really a problem, and are down considerably from what they once were.

If Mexico wants to completely legalize all drugs, that's their perogative. Why would we do so because they saw off heads in OTHER countries? Our laws should be based on our needs.
