    No, it is our archaic drug laws that keeps the gang wars going. When's the last time you saw gangs fighting over booze selling? Prohibition DOESN'T work in this case and is causing more problems and loss of life than decriminalizing drugs would do.

    Correct. As long as we have a huge appetite for drugs, yet insist on keeping the absurd war on drugs going, then there is going to be a black market. What the Mexican cartels are fighting over is who gets to profit from that black market.

    If you legalized marijuana today the Mexican Cartels would go out of business in a month. Mexican marijuana can't even compare to what could be produced in America and Canada.

    Absolutely. If drugs were legalized, cartels globally would immediately implode. Legal businesses would spring up all across the USA, bootleg product would be ignored. Taxes could go toward rehabilitation facilities for those who want help, physicians could monitor the health of those who don't. Courtrooms and prisons would drop 80% of their workload. Law enforcement would be able to chase real criminals, with real victims.

    Prohibition against personal ingestion products does... not... work. History has taught us that.

    Apparently, history hasn't taught us that just yet. Perhaps after few more gang wars, a few thousand more murders, another hundred million or so in prison, we'll sit up and take notice.
