    They did a great story on him on the History Channel, recently. I think it still may be playing reruns now.

    What are the drug addicts going to do when the drugs become "legal" and the "uncorrupted" Mexican government is busy setting up these narcotic manufacturing plants??

    They'll still take the drugs. However, they'll be much safer, and if they do want to get help, they won't be ostracized by their government.

    Who said anything about the Mexican government doing it? There are tons of people willing to pick up a legal drug trade just like currently legal narcotics.

    Where are the addicts going to get their cocaine right after the Mexican government chases off all the cartels? The addicts will be in somewhat of an idle stage during all this chaos....so how are they going to keep a steady flow of narcotics coming into America?

    Where did the booze drinkers go after Prohibition was repealed? New competitors take up the market.

    If the Mexican government could chase off the cartels, they would have done so by now. What will end the cartels is competition from legitimate sources that will make it impossible for them to make money. Take the money out of the cartels, and you end them.

    I understood you just fine. There is plenty of money to be made in a legal narcotics market. Others will step in.
