    If you don't give him ammunition, he has nothing to fight with.

    You do not fight with officers of the law, even though they think they are, they are not the last word on anything.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    And even if hell froze over and the cartels said hey you know since drugs became legal we should stop shooting the competition and figure out other ways to make money then they will move onto something else that makes them just as much money.

    Right. Just like the epidemic of violent crime associated with the distribution and sale of alcohol continued after prohibition was repealed.

    Oh, wait...

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The mob in the US were not as powerful as the cartels in the Mexico and I am pretty sure our cops,military and government were not as corrupt, weak willed and or undermanned as those in Mexico.

    So you are telling me that the cartels are going to stop killing their competition and other **** they do just because drugs become legal? If the cartels do not care if something is illegal then why would they care if something becomes legal? They will still have the man power and financial motivation to make sure that only they control the drug trade in Mexico.

    I agree with the rest of what he said. Every cop friend of mine says all the time: There is no way that talking to us can help you. Don't do it. When you're asked "do you know why I pulled you over," there is no correct answer. You know that whole "anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law?" It's true.

    Deuce, he was asking me about that last comment.

    Caine, you can't tel me you have never heard a cop say he was going to put someone in prison.

    A cop does not have the power to put somebody in prison. The judge, jury and attorneys do that.

    A cop is a cog in a huge money making machine, they are the front line that gets the wheels moving. A cop is allowed by law to lie cheat and steal to make his case against somebody and you know what they say about ultimate power.

    In my experience if you don't talk to the officer when you are getting a ticket, then plead not guilty, he probably won't remember the ticket when it gets to court. He gives out so many tickets, it is hard to remember them all.

    If you make a big fuss, he will take notes and crush you in court, however if you don't make yourself memorable, he will have better things to do.

    It has worked for me, I would say, 90% of the time.

    Our military is not authorized to participate in or conduct law enforcement activities, and has not been for some time.

    As for government corruption, we had plenty of that going around. The difference between Mexico and America is the magnitude of the corruption, not the nature of it. The magnitude of it is because of economics.

    There wouldn't be any percentage whatsoever in drug-related violence in the United States. Once legalized drugs would be sold by a wide variety of enterprising businesspeople. Even if we were smart and either restricted the sale to pharmacies or heavily regulated whoever decided to try that hand at selling recreational drugs, there would be so many different sources to buy from that no criminal organization on the face of the Earth would have the manpower or firepower to subdue a measurable fraction of them. Additionally, any business thusly assaulted would have the option of going to the police, since they would be engaging in legal activities. Furthermore, think of how much money the government would make by taxing the currently untaxed recreational drug trade, and how many more cops would be on the street.

    This would not have an immediate, direct impact on criminal activities in Mexico, but it would definitely have a huge impact over time. Once drugs are legal in the US, Mexican cartels lose their most profitable customer -- both in terms of consumption and easy of supply. If they don't find a way to make up that income, which they likely would not, they will not have the money to continue their private wars at the level they're conducting them now, nor to rent entire towns to act as their private bases of operations.

    I don't think legalizing pot will do anything for the violence in Mexico.

    The cartels are fighting for control to supply.

    Legalizing pot in the US or in California won't do anything for that.

    OK, let's say pot was legalized in the whole country tomorrow.

    There is not enough of a stash to suply all the people that would want to buy it.

    The cartels would still be part of the equation, and yes the violence would still be there.

    If you think the violence will ever go away, you don't understand who the cartels are or why they are doing what they are doing.
